Art museums and universities/colleges are vitally important educational institutions in the United States. They, and the society at large, have come to a new awareness of the pressing need to address systemic, ingrained racism and other prejudices that have historically limited access to, participation in, and leadership roles not only in civil society generally but also (and in particularly) the country’s museums & institutions of higher education. This Civil Conversation will address commonalities and differences in the challenges museums and institutions of higher education confront in achieving goals of greater diversity, equity, and broader inclusion in the governance, activities, and roles these organizations play in civil society generally and in their communities.
