The foundation of SFMOMA is its belief that modern and contemporary art can influence the way we think, view the world, and embrace the many voices and perspectives around us. And yet, we acknowledge that institutional practices have perpetuated a system that caused some people to be neglected and silenced. We are committed to repairing and building trust, and being an inclusive, accessible museum for people of color, LGBTQ+ people, women, people with disabilities, and many other integral members of our internal and external communities.
We, the staff and board of trustees, aspire to foster an environment that elicits joy, nurtures a sense of belonging and purpose, and embodies our values—where difference is seen as a strength, and everyone is appreciated for their whole self.
This commitment requires dedication that must permeate all we do on individual and institutional levels. As we continue this journey to transform our culture from the inside out, we pledge to prioritize diversity, equity, inclusion, and access, across our museum and throughout our community—staff, board, artists, members, donors, visitors, volunteers, and the public.
We are in the process of setting specific, measurable, time-bound goals for diversity, equity, and inclusion at SFMOMA. We will hold ourselves accountable to these direct actions; Click the “See All” button below to read all of our Institutional Updates.
We encourage open and ongoing dialogue with you about our progress. All forms of feedback are welcome and will be shared with our colleagues in the relevant departments. Please contact us at DEI@sfmoma.org.
