The New York City Ballet, the largest dance organization in America, seeks a thoughtful and accomplished leader for its inaugural Senior Director for Human Resources, Diversity and Inclusion.

 

Charged with providing comprehensive oversight, planning and management of all human resources functions of NYCB, the Senior Director will be a champion of the organization's core values and strategic commitment to attract, retain, advance and support a broadly diverse workforce of the highest level of excellence that thrives in a respectful, inclusive and equitable workplace culture.Reporting to the Executive Director, the Senior Director is a member of the senior management team and serves as staff liaison to the Diversity Committee of the Board of Directors.  NYCB’s workforce is a mix of union and non-union personnel, including 130 employees, 90+ dancers, and a 62-piece orchestra.

 

New York City Ballet is one of the foremost dance companies in the world, with an unparalleled repertory of ballets, nearly all created specifically for NYCB, and many of which are considered modern masterpieces.  The Company was founded in 1948 by visionary arts patron Lincoln Kirstein and legendary choreographer George Balanchine, who served as Ballet Master of NYCB from its inception until his death in 1983.  Today the Company has more than 90 dancers, a 62-member orchestra, and an institute for choreography (the New York Choreographic Institute), and over 150 works in active repertory.  Virtually all of its dancers come from the affiliated School of American Ballet.  The Company is also responsible for the management the David H. Koch Theater, and has an annual budget of approximately $89 million. 

 

In spring 2017, NYCB launched ENTRECHAT: The New York City Ballet Initiative for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, the goal of which was to expand the Company’s organizational demographics and strengthen its culture to become inclusive, equitable, and reflective of the diversity of the country. With the full support of the Board of Directors and the assistance of an outside consultant, the NYCB worked assiduously to create a Diversity, Equity and Inclusion plan to identify strategic priorities and specific objectives to be achieved in the next five years.

 

The successful candidate will be a dynamic, experienced human resources professional who can celebrate the traditions and culture of the performing arts while simultaneously building a culture of equity and inclusion. An exceptional communicator, the incoming Senior Director will demonstrate an ability to engender trust across a wide range of artists, administrators, board members, and patrons. As both a champion of and advocate for inclusion, the Senior Director will preserve the traditions and core values of the NYCB while serving as a change agent and influencer within the NYCB infrastructure. An exceptional human resource professional, the successful candidate will possess a broad knowledge of and experience in organizational development, employee relations, recruiting, coaching and training, and best practices in promotion diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace. A minimum of a bachelor’s degree or equivalent, preferably in human resources, organizational development, or a related field and ten plus years of progressive leadership experience and responsibilities in human resources positions, is required.
