BATS is committed to taking the steps necessary to become a diverse, equitable and inclusive improvised theater community that fully affirms and celebrates artists, especially BIPOC artists. We strive to create an anti-racist, healthy creative community that embeds spontaneous and creative risk taking within a safe and inclusive environment for our community. The BATS Conflict Process set forth below is a part of the BATS Equity Action Plan to disrupt White Supremacy and to support our process in cultivating an equitable environment. The Conflict Process is in support of the BATS values and ensures that the BATS community feels safe and free from harassment. It is intended to support our leadership, staff, employees, company members, coaches, board members, guest artists, students and audience members. This process provides tools to uphold our Community Standards and hold ourselves and each other accountable. It is applicable to breaks from the Community Standards as well as to other forms of conflict.
We maintain the Conflict Process on the website as a form of transparency and accountability to BATS community members as well as the larger improv community. Other companies are welcomed and encouraged to provide feedback regarding the Conflict Process which will be reviewed and updated annually and to use this framework to develop their own conflict process.
This form is for filing complaints about the behavior of one or more specific BATS community members, and it is the first step towards formally requesting support. Please review the BATS Conflict Process document for more information about what will happen once you complete this form. If you have accessibility issues or other difficulties completing this form you can email firstname.lastname@example.org to make arrangements for someone to complete the form on your behalf.
