    Thank you Teresa Eyring for writing this article. Sadly, the questions you raise are vitally necessary and will be, I fear, for time to come.
    With all respect, and not attempting to reframe the topics you raise, I think it would be interesting to know what TCG’s sexual harassment policy is. As a leader in the theatre industry, TCG sets an example for others to follow. By laying out (in broad strokes, of course) how TCG handles and protects those who bring harassment claims it would be enlightening and instructive to the rest of us.
    If there is a link to the TCG policy perhaps it could be amended to the end of your article.
    Thank you again for your cogent and necessary article.

    • TCG RESPONDS: Thank you for writing. TCG recognizes its unique position to speak and lead on this issue. Our goal is to provide a safe work environment where all employees are treated with respect. Our written policy prohibits harassment of any employee by any supervisor, employee, member, or vendor on the basis of sex, gender identity, or gender expression. Employees who feel they have experienced conduct that violates this policy may immediately report the matter to their supervisor. If their supervisor doesn’t respond within five days, they may reach out to a member of TCG’s senior leadership; if their supervisor is the person about whom the complaint is being made, they may go directly to a member of TCG’s senior leadership. Every report of perceived harassment is fully investigated, and corrective action is taken where appropriate. Violation of the policy results in disciplinary action, up to and including termination of employment, and TCG will not allow any form of retaliation against individuals who report unwelcome conduct to management or who cooperate in the investigations of such reports in accordance with the policy.

        Thank you AT for providing such a detailed response. We who work in the theatrical arts should feel safer and more secure knowing that one the nation’s largest and most influential theatre organizations has such a comprehensive SH/A policy.
