STC Harassment Policy Statement
STC is committed to maintaining an environment free of any type of harassment that diminishes the dignity of the people involved with our productions. STC has adopted a detailed policy on this subject.
Harassment, whether verbal, non-verbal, or physical, will not be tolerated in the STC environment. This includes all rehearsals, performances, social events performed at the Hoogland Center for the Arts (HCFTA), or any other function where the person is working on behalf of STC.
It is the policy of STC that anyone working with minors while participating in STC events will refrain from any private contact with minors, including, but not limited to email, texts, snapchats, phone calls, WhatsApp, Facebook, Facebook Messenger, or any similar electronic application. Any required communication must either be made on a public or semi-public forum (i.e. a group email to an entire cast and staff of a show, or a closed Facebook group involving all members of cast and crew of a production and includes the STC Exec Board) or include the minor’s parent or guardian on the correspondence.
Any cast, crew, or staff member who feels subjected to harassment of any sort, or who has knowledge of harassing conduct within the STC environment, is encouraged to report such conduct to the director, assistant director, producer, or to any member of the STC Board of Directors.
If you have any questions regarding this policy, feel free to ask your director, your producer(s), or a member of the STC Board.
