Employers must hold separate auditions or interviews for Equity performers.
In New York and Chicago, Equity maintains audition studios that are
available for rental. Casting information is available on area hotlines and
bulletin boards in Equity offices. In October of 1998, Equity launched
Casting Call, a Web-based search engine of Equity job notices.
Equity contracts explicitly prohibit all forms of discrimination based on
race, creed, gender, age, disability, national origin or sexual orientation.
Equity is committed to equal employment opportunities for all members, and
encourages and promotes a casting policy known as Non-Traditional Casting.
Non-Traditional Casting is designed to increase artistic options by
expanding casting opportunities for women, actors of color, seniors and
actors with disabilities in roles where race, gender, age of the presence or
absence of a disabililty are not germane.
Please refer to the actual Agreement, or contact your
regional Equity Office for details
