#AAM2021 Elevate Stage Session: Increasing Racial and Ethnic Diversity on Museum Boards

Category: Diversity, Equity, Accessibility, and Inclusion

How do we diversify the makeup of museum boards while promoting artists, curators, leaders, and museums who preserve and tell the stories of people of color? Many museums are challenged with navigating the steps to create a more equitable and inclusive institution. Diverse representation in institutional leadership can usher those opportunities to the forefront. In this Elevate Stage session, you will hear from Jean Franczyk, President and CEO of Chicago Botanic Garden; Brooke Minto, Executive Director of The Black Trustee Alliance of Art Museums; Victoria Rogers, Steering Committee Chair for The Black Trustee Alliance for Art Museums; and Patrick Salazar, Executive Director of Latinos LEAD sharing effective methods to advance racial and ethnic diversity on your museum board. This Elevate Stage session took place as part of the 2021 AAM Annual Meeting & MusuemExpo on May 24, 2021 and was generously supported by Blackbaud.
