Pay Equity in the Theatre Industry

How we can embrace our shared responsibility to hold institutions accountable and advocate where we have agency

Thursday 22 July 2021

Wingspace Theatrical Design presented a Virtual Salon on Pay Equity in the Theatre Industry livestreaming on the global, commons-based, peer produced HowlRound TV network at howlround.tv on Thursday 22 July 2021 at 5 p.m. PDT (San Francisco, UTC -7) / 7 p.m. CDT (Chicago, UTC -5) / 8 p.m. EDT (New York, UTC -4).

The need for pay equity in the theatre industry across job titles and areas of work is crucial for a more sustainable theatre ecosystem. This ongoing fight has been amplified by the challenges faced by theater workers throughout the pandemic. As many of us prepare to begin working in-person, new challenges will arise as organizations cry “scarcity” as an excuse for lower fees and lack of transparency. What can each of us do to ensure that the theatre industry in the USA moves forward with practices that sustain us, both artistically and financially?

Join Wingspace and HowlroundTV for a roundtable discussion with Elizabeth Wislar, Wu Chen Khoo, and Kimie Nishikawa about how we can embrace our shared responsibility to hold institutions accountable and advocate where we have agency. Moderated by Elsa Hiltner.

Wingspace is committed to inclusivity and we are dedicated to increasing accessibility for all our events. If you have questions or concerns centered around access or accommodations we strongly welcome you to please reach out to us via DM or email: salons@wingspace.com
