2020-21 Notes

  1. SFMOMA’s Dashboard will continually evolve to reflect work in progress.
  2. Starting with the FY21 Dashboard, SFMOMA began taking a holistic, consistent approach on the methods and terminology used to capture data pertaining to identity factors. After soliciting input from staff and consultants, we implemented a new multi-factor, inclusive survey approach to data collection, starting with living artists and staff.
  3. Identity data collected for SFMOMA living artists and staff for 2020–21 is self-reported, multi-factor, and reflects more inclusive set of identity factor descriptors than the 2019–20 Dashboard.
  4. 2020–21 identity data for deceased artists was acquired through public record research and remains single-factor.
  5. 2020–21 identity data for our visitors and board remains single-factor.
  6. Our 2020–21 Dashboard is established in part as a tool for goal setting and establishing time-based milestones for diversity metrics. Learn more about our DEI strategic goals.
