Tennessee Performing Arts Center seeks Chief Diversity & Inclusion Officer
DHR International has been retained to conduct the search for a Chief Diversity & Inclusion Officer for the Tennessee Performing Arts Center (“TPAC”).
Founded in 1980, TPAC ($25 million pre-pandemic) serves several hundred thousand audience members each year with the HCA/TriStar Health Broadway at TPAC series, a variety of presentations and rentals, and is the home theater of three resident arts organizations: Nashville Ballet, Nashville Opera, and Nashville Repertory Theatre. In addition, TPAC administers one of the largest and most comprehensive arts education programs in the United States, serving students from pre-school to high school, educators, and adults.
Reporting to President & CEO Jennifer Turner (placed by DHR in May 2019), the Chief Diversity & Inclusion Officer (CD&IO) will oversee the human resources department and have cross-departmental influence over the entire organization. The CD&IO will be a content expert and brain trust to TPAC leadership, providing DIAE-forward counsel and advice on all strategies of the enterprise. We are seeking a dynamic and inspired diversity and inclusion executive, who is both strategic and tactical, to represent this anchor institution in the Nashville and state-wide community and help the organization live out its core values.
