Research from The Stage found people of colour made up just 8% of leaders at the 50 highest-funded theatres in England - among all but one, their Executive Directors are white.
The survey of these 50 theatres also found:
- Men held 69% of artistic director positions in 2019
- There were 16 female artistic directors, up from 14 in 2014 and 2009
- The number of women in executive roles has grown 35% over the past decade
- Women now outnumber men in executive director roles at 65% of that group
