The Jimmy Awards is a program of The Broadway League Foundation. The Broadway League believes in promoting an equitable and inclusive theatre community and recognizes that our industry must change in order to reflect those values. To that end, The League is committed to promoting anti-racist policies and practices in our organization and our industry through raising awareness, providing opportunities for meaningful dialogue and sharing resources with our membership. As live theatre makers, we understand that it is through the experience of listening to and learning from each other’s stories that we come to better understand each other’s journeys. Black lives matter, and the members of the Broadway League are committed to providing a safe space where these stories can be shared and the seeds of change can take root.
We commit to encouraging all of our members and partners, whether producers, theatre owners, general managers, presenters, unions, guilds or vendors, to confront racism, build inclusive cultures and create career opportunities which advance BIPOC artists and professionals in our industry, whether backstage, onstage or in the executive suite.
