?

GuideStar worked with BoardSource, the national leader in nonprofit board leadership and governance, to create this section, which enables organizations and donors to transparently share information about essential board leadership practices.

Board Orientation & Education ?
Why does this matter? Without clarity around their responsibilities and expectations, board members are not positioned to succeed. They may find themselves challenged to fulfill their governance responsibilities or frustrated by the expectations that the organization has set for them. BoardSource recommends that every new board member participate in a formal orientation process, and that all board members sign a pledge or agreement committing to their board service and to all of the responsibilities and expectations that come with service. Ideally, board members also should participate in a formal governance training program prior to serving on a board.

Does the board conduct a formal orientation for new board members and require all board members to sign a written agreement regarding their roles, responsibilities, and expectations?
Response Not Provided
CEO Oversight ?
Why does this matter? Oversight and management of the chief executive is one of the board’s most important legal responsibilities. The CEO or executive director is the board's single employee, and - just like any other employer/employee relationship - regular and written assessment is critical to ensuring that the chief executive and board are communicating openly about goals and performance. BoardSource recommends that boards conduct formal, written reviews of their chief executives on an annual basis, which should include an in-person discussion with the chief executive and distribution of the written evaluation to the full board.

Has the board conducted a formal, written assessment of the chief executive within the past year?
Response Not Provided
Ethics & Transparency ?
Why does this matter? A commitment to handling conflicts of interests is essential to creating an organizational culture of transparency. Boards should create and follow a policy for identifying and handling conflicts of interest, whether real or perceived. BoardSource recommends that organizations review the conflict-of-interest statement and require signed disclosures from all board members and senior staff on an annual basis.

Have the board and senior staff reviewed the conflict-of-interest policy and completed and signed disclosure statements within the past year?
Response Not Provided
Board Composition ?
Why does this matter? The best boards are composed of individuals who bring a variety of skills, perspectives, backgrounds, and resources to tackle the complex and strategic challenges confronting their organizations. BoardSource recommends that boards commit to diversity and inclusion by establishing written policies and practices, which include strategic and intentional recruitment of diverse board members, continual commitment to inclusivity, and equal access to board leadership opportunities.

Does the board ensure an inclusive board member recruitment process that results in diversity of thought and leadership?
Yes
Board Performance ?
Why does this matter? Boards need to regularly assess their own performance. Doing so ensures that they are being intentional about how they govern their organization, which is a critical component of effective board leadership. BoardSource recommends that a board conduct a self-assessment of its performance a minimum of once every three years to ensure that it is staying on track with its roles and responsibilities.

Has the board conducted a formal, written self-assessment of its performance within the past three years?
Response Not Provided

Program Description:

The Shakespeare Theatre Company (STC) believes that a classical play is defined not only by its poetic language or its influential playwright, but also by the timelessness of the themes and questions that it poses to its audience. Part of STC’s mission is to make classical theatre accessible to audiences, helping them view the stories through a 21st-century lens. The universal themes of family, love, patriotism and leadership, depicted in STC’s mainstage offerings, are relatable by all people and particularly relevant to Washington, D.C.’s contemporary audiences, in light of the country’s (and the world’s) political, social and economic realities. Shakespeare Theatre Company is especially equipped to provide this programming to the D.C. region as one of only a few theatres in the United States and the only major theatre in this area devoted to producing a classic repertoire. From ancient Greece to 20th-Century America, Shakespeare Theatre Company annually produces six classical plays--both famous and rarely performed works--that reveal the human dilemma and are accessible to contemporary audiences. Over the past 25 years, Shakespeare Theatre Company has performed 150 productions—including every play in Shakespeare’s canon—for more than 2.5 million audience members.   The Shakespeare Theatre Company seeks to bring the best of performing arts to D.C. audiences by making its two facilities (774-seat Sidney Harman Hall and 451-seat Lansburgh Theatre) available to a broad spectrum of local, national and international arts companies or Harman Center Artistic Partners.  During the 2010-11 Season, STC piloted a presenting series. A great success, the series was included again with the 2011-12 Season and is being planned for the upcoming 2012-13 Season. Harman Center presenting partnerships provide mid-sized Theatre space, in downtown D.C., to national tours, local dance festivals and many others. STC is deeply committed to its hometown of Washington, D.C. and has proudly served as a catalyst for revitalization in the historic Penn Quarter of downtown Washington. Continued collaboration with other major arts and cultural organizations further establishes Shakespeare Theatre Company as a major cultural destination and community resource.   Each year, Shakespeare Theatre Company launches its season with the annual Free For All. Since its inception in 1991, this signature outreach program has presented free, full-scale, classical theatre productions to over 630,000 D.C. area residents. The Free For All is the most successful community outreach program in STC’s 25-year history. The program provides new and diverse audiences, especially those who might otherwise be financially unable, with the opportunity to experience classical theatre, for free.Shakespeare Theatre Company develops a Play Guide to accompany the production and distributes it to children attending the event. STC’s Education Department also provides a Students for Shakespeare reserved ticket program, for student groups attending the Free For All.   Shakespeare Theatre Company’s Education Department strives to make Shakespeare and classical theatre exciting both on the stage and off. The Department annually provides over 14,000 children and adults with arts education experiences through its roster of comprehensive education and audience enrichment programming. Text Alive!, an in-school arts enrichment program, supports Common Core State Standards for English and Theatre. A collaboration between students, classroom teachers and STC teaching artits, Text Alive! explores a Shakespeare play and culminates in a performance of his work on one of the Theatre’s two stages. Participation in Text Alive! is free of charge. Both Text Alive! and SHAKESPEARIENCE Student Matinees are committed to serving local underserved children.  SHAKESPEARIENCE provides subsidized tickets on a sliding scale for local classrooms. The program also supplies pre-show in-school workshops and study guides. STC’s Internship and Fellowship programs are highly competitive among recent college graduates who use the program to gain real world professional arts administration and artistic experiences. Creative Conversations, a mainstay of STC’s audience enrichment programs, provides a rotation of four free discussion programs designed to enhance the productions playing on-stage. Happenings at the Harman, STC’s free performance series, connects patrons who live and work in the Penn Quarter neighborhood with local performing artists. This program is held on Wednesdays from noon to 1 STC creates relevant resource materials to accompany the Season’s productions, including the First Folio Teacher and Student Resource Guide and The Guide to the Season’s Plays. Finally, the Theatre also provides professional development seminars for adults and a summer camp for children.   Since 2000, Shakespeare Theatre Company, in conjunction with The George Washington University, has offered a Master of Fine Arts degree, to help develop the next generation of actors for classical theatre. Training no more than 16 actors each year, the Academy for Classical Acting’s one-year, fully accredited intensive graduate program focuses on the specific craft of performing Shakespeare and other classical texts and is therefore an alternative to most traditional MFA acting programs. Alumni from this program go on to perform classic theatre with reputable professional theatre companies from around the country.
