Announcing the #OneMoreConversation campaign:

#OneMoreConversation is a call to directors, artistic directors, producers, boards, and other decision-makers to have just one more conversation before making a hiring decision: with a woman designer, technician, stage manager,
assistant or any theatre professional.

It’s repeatable vocabulary that gives theatre leaders a straightforward, achievable tool for expanding their pool of collaborators and diversifying their creative teams.

Why just one more conversation? It’s a reasonable request, not onerous or pressured: simply a commitment to put a woman in the mix. If that one conversation doesn’t result in a job, that decision maker’s network will still have grown to include one more woman artist. And they might recommend her to others or collaborate with her in the future! Because relationships are everything in our field, #OneMoreConversation has the potential for far-reaching, long-term impact.

The first step is YOU! Start NOW to spread the word on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram! 

Use #OneMoreConversation + @LPTWomen to spread the word to all your colleagues and all corners of our industry!
Let’s get everybody talking!
