Who we are
On Our Team was founded in 2020 to address ongoing labor and pay equity issues in Costume Design and other theatrical design areas by Bob Kuhn, Christine Pascual, Elsa Hiltner, and Theresa Ham.
What We've done
On Our Team is working to build consensus on the need for pay equity in the theatre industry across job titles and areas of work. The organization successfully campaigned for pay transparency on the League of Chicago Theatres' job site in 2020, and joined Costume Professionals for Wage Equity in 2021 to successfully campaign for pay transparency on Playbill and BroadwayWorld's job sites in 2021.
