Today, on the Hearst Museum’s 119th birthday, we are proud to announce that we have joined the OF/BY/FOR ALL Change Network, a global community of civic and cultural organizations working to welcome new communities and become more inclusive, equitable, and relevant. The Change Network has 75 member organizations in 11 countries, including museums, libraries, theaters, and community centers. In this program, our team will work with forward-thinking peers around the world to adopt new approaches to community work, build new skills, listen to our community, and respond with meaningful action and change.
In joining the Change Network, we are making a year-long commitment to make concrete changes to grow closer to our community. We believe our work will be strongest if more voices are involved and included as we grow. We invite you to share your ideas for what a more inclusive Hearst Museum might look like, get involved in our evolution, and hold us accountable to our commitments as we move forward.
