MOULIN ROUGE! Hires Chloe Beck as Director Of Equity, Diversity & Inclusion

Chloe Beck has joined the Moulin Rouge! The Musical company as Director of Equity, Diversity & Inclusion. She officially began in the newly created role on July 12th following ten years in higher education, most recently at New York University. Her work will focus on the Broadway production, the forthcoming US National Tour and the show's productions opening internationally.

Chloe Beck said, "After living through the pandemic and noting the effects of Covid-19 and police brutality on BIPOC, queer, trans and non-binary bodies, I knew that I could not stop fighting for equity and inclusion after protests slowed down. It's time for me to bring my love of the arts, fresh perspectives and passion for cultivating belonging into the EDI space. It's time to not only wish for "truth, beauty, freedom and love" in this world, but time to work towards it. Moulin Rouge! The Musical is a place where everyone is welcome and it's a privilege to work alongside so many passionate people striving to prove just that. The time for systematic change on Broadway is now and I'm ecstatic to be one of the leaders of that change."

Carmen Pavlovic and Bill Damaschke said, "We are thrilled to have found an ideal leader in Chloe Beck in the role of Director of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion at Moulin Rouge! The Musical. Recognizing the need for long overdue and necessary change in our industry we strongly believe Chloe will be a key partner in driving strategies, programs and initiatives to give our company the tools required to embed Equity, Diversity and Inclusion in our culture and day to day operations. Moulin Rouge! The Musical is based on a world in which all are welcome. Working with Chloe, we are committed to making this a reality in every aspect of the production."

As a seasoned student affairs professional, Chloe Beck has created safe, diverse, and inclusive spaces for key stakeholders across campuses nationwide. She has worked extensively in training and development, anti-bias response, and mental health and wellness. Chloe has spearheaded the creation and implementation of several affinity groups, initiatives and programs ranging from black women in leadership to navigating LGBTQIA rights in the workplace. Chloe has facilitated training around EDI topics for over 10 years and blends media, academics, and culturally relevant colloquialisms to engage and make EDI topics accessible and easy to grasp. Chloe's motto for EDI work is simple, "we call each other in, not out" and once we are all "in'' the room, we can begin to work on building the bridges to authenticity, access and acceptance.
