Cuyahoga Arts & Culture is committed to fostering, cultivating and preserving a culture of diversity and inclusion.

We embrace and encourage our employees’ differences in age, color, ethnicity, ancestry, sex, family or marital status, gender identity or expression, language, national origin, physical and mental disability, political affiliation, race, religion, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, veteran status, citizenship status, and other characteristics that make our employees unique.

Cuyahoga Arts & Culture diversity initiatives are applicable — but not limited — to our practices and policies on recruitment and selection; compensation and benefits; professional development and training; promotions; social and recreational programs; layoffs; terminations; and the ongoing development of a work environment built on the premise of gender and diversity equity that encourages and enforces:

  • respectful communication and cooperation between all employees;
  • teamwork and employee participation, permitting the representation of all groups and employee perspectives; and
  • work/life balance through flexible work schedules to accommodate employees’ varying needs.

All employees of Cuyahoga Arts & Culture have a responsibility to treat others with dignity and respect at all times. All employees are expected to exhibit conduct that reflects inclusion during work, at work functions on or off the work site, and at all other company-sponsored and participative events.

Any employee found to have exhibited any inappropriate conduct or behavior against others may be subject to disciplinary action.

Employees who believe they have been subjected to any kind of discrimination that conflicts with the company’s diversity policy and initiatives should seek assistance from a supervisor or an HR representative.
