CODE OF ETHICS
The organization’s Code of Ethics guides the work of Mu’s board and staff members, and its artistic partners. Its primary purposes are:
To set an ethical standard for how Mu board, staff and artistic partners approach their work and make decisions
To provide ethical standards to which the general public can hold Mu accountable
To enable Mu board, staff and artistic partners to address issues of conflict or unethical behaviors and have clear procedures to address those issues
Ethical decision-making is a process that often has no clear answers. Mu’s Code of Ethics is not an attempt to provide exact processes and answers to issues. Rather, the Code of Ethics is a guide to help Mu stakeholders make thoughtful, reasoned and ethical decisions.
The standards outlined below include enforceable guidelines for conduct as well as aspirational ones. Enforceable matters are determined at the discretion of Mu leadership.
Theater Mu is committed to:
