Statement of Purpose

The Equity & Engagement Committee strives to engage the diverse needs of the community served by the Everson Museum. With a lens of equity, this committee will focus on five key business pillars: governance, leadership, exhibitions, programs, and outreach. This committee will continue to develop recommendations for action, including measures of success that will be shared with the community. It is comprised of Board, staff, volunteers, and community partners to carry out the commitment to racial and economic justice.
