Diversity Committee (DivCom)

Vision

The vision of the Diversity Professional Network (DivCom) is a field where an active commitment to diversity and inclusion is integral to excellence at every level of museum culture, practice and operations.

Purpose

– Supporting emerging and current museum professionals that identify as POC, Indigenous, LGBTQI+, having a disability, Immigrant/Refugee and/or as members of another underrepresented group.

– Mentoring and collaborating with museum professionals across the field who are advancing diversity.

– Bringing attention to strategic institutional change efforts and business practices that reflect an active commitment to diversity and inclusion.
