Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Access (IDEA)
The Aerospace Museum of California (AMC) inspires, educates and entertains through our exhibits and hands-on STEAM activities, and is a place that encourages creative ideas, innovative thinking, open dialogue, and meaningful exchange. When all people are included and see themselves reflected in our mission, we can transform our communities, our institutions, and our world into better places for everyone.
Museums are trusted, vibrant community centers, attracting diverse audiences and providing lifelong learning.The Aerospace Museum of California believes that inclusion, diversity, equity, and access (IDEA) are essential to its mission and vision. In our role as a cultural, educational, and civic leader, we have a moral obligation for our institution to include the diverse perspectives and narratives of people from the local to the global communities.
As a valued community partner, the Aerospace Museum of California takes pride in maintaining the public trust by caring for important collections, displaying educational exhibits, documenting the human story, and bearing witness to history and inspiring the next generation of dreamers and doers.
We are committed to engage underrepresented artists, students, visitors and organizations through exhibits, programs, and collaborations that reflect and celebrate the diversity of our local, regional, national, and global communities. We seek to improve our organizational ability to attract, welcome, and serve a diverse audience and membership. We work collaboratively to ensure AMC’s board, staff, and volunteers reflect our diverse communities.
