As part of our ongoing work to address the issue of sexual harassment in the performing arts, StageSource recommends that all theater companies (even small or informal groups of collaborators) adopt comprehensive policies to help prevent harassment and to properly manage reports should they occur. Recognizing that not all organizations are able to tackle this alone, we have compiled some sample documents which can be adapted and adopted by any and all theater makers.
These samples were developed based on the work done at our recent Line Drawn Summit as well as best practices compiled from some of our participating member organizations. These are not intended to be exhaustive, or one-size-fits-all. Nor can they replace the important work that all organizations must undertake to address this issue at its core, and to shift the culture from within. These documents are meant simply to offer a starting point to those who need one.
