Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) Policy Statement
The Rock Club Music Is The Remedy (TRC-MITR) is committed to fostering and maintaining a work environment where diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) are fully integrated into everything we do. To fully realize our goal, we prioritize our understanding of the complexities of DEI within our workforce to inform our approach to accomplish our mission to nourish, comfort and protect the community we work with and serve.

Inclusion ensures that individuals with different identities are valued, leveraged and welcome within our workplace.
