About Elsa Hiltner

I am a writer and organizer on labor and pay equity in theatrical design. My first essay, A Call for Equal Support in Theatrical Design, went viral after it was published by HowlRound in 2016. I established the Theatrical Designer Pay Resource in 2018 which has been used by designers across the country to share their pay information and gain knowledge on others' compensation. I work as a pay equity consultant with BLVE Consults. I also co-founded On Our Team, a Chicago-based cohort of designers working to build pay and labor equity in the theatre industry.

In 2021 I was honored with the Michael Merritt Awards' Art Advocate Award.
