Equity statement

The Tetley recognises, respects and values people’s differences.

We aim to create a workplace where diversity is valued and conditions support an individual’s needs, where we devise and deliver a programme that champions diverse voices and which supports individuals who may have faced barriers to developing their creative practice and where we work to transform inequities in our sector and in the communities we serve.

We understand that if The Tetley is to achieve these goals, our staff, trustees and the practitioners we work with need to reflect the diversity of Leeds, and to understand the interests and cultures of the individuals and communities who live here.

Below, we share a statement describing in full our commitment to equity and an overview of our subsequent action plan.
