Director of HR, Equity & Inclusion

After a short career in private law practice and as in-house counsel, Caitlin determined that her true passion is creating happy and inclusive workplaces. Caitlin joined Portland Center Stage as HR Manager during their 2015-2016 season and became Director of HR, Equity and Inclusion in 2017. Her current role allows her to shape the organization’s people-related processes with a strong focus on equity, diversity, and inclusion. Outside of the office, Caitlin occasionally takes on pro bono legal work and enthusiastically connects her volunteer advocacy with Portland Center Stage's mission of equity and inclusion. Caitlin studied theater at New York University, journalism at the University of Oregon, and law at Lewis & Clark Law School.
