The new title, dubbed chief humankindness officer, could also be used in a future marketing effort, according to a May 17 announcement from St. Luke's.
"The search, and new chief humankindness officer role, brings to life St. Luke’s Health’s 'Hello humankindness' movement, which supports the philosophy that while medicine has the ability to cure, shared humanity and human connection has the power to heal—body, mind and spirit," St. Luke's officials said in the announcement.
The casting call will take place at Silver Street Studios in Sawyer Yards, 2000 Edwards St., Houston, from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Participants will be asked to deliver 30 seconds of "motivational encouragement and positivity," according to a press release.
Participants will also be asked to share what human kindness means to them and how they show it to others. No previous performance experience is required.
Following the casting call, one child will be selected as the new chief humankindness officer. In addition to the chance to be part of a marketing effort, the winner will also get to meet the casting director from the Houston-based talent agency Upward Artistry for a one-on-one session to hone performance skills.
St. Luke's is a Catholic health system that operates a number of hospitals in the Houston area, including the Baylor St. Luke's hospital in the medical center.
