Iowa Museum Association Board of Directors (IMA) is committed to equity and
inclusion and believes honoring black experiences and perspectives is essential. IMA recognizes those working towards positive
change in Iowa and the broader museum field, including The African American
Museum of Iowa, The Association of African American Museums (AAAM), Museum Hue,
and Museums and Race. These and other resources are now posted on
our website in an effort to support and encourage museums in Iowa to take on
courageous conversations with their communities.
Board of Directors is committed to cultivating our own understanding through
reflection and training focused on addressing racial issues and creating space
for more diversity within our own group.
today we will:
· Amplify the work of the organizations listed above and other groups
working on racial equity by curating a resource list on the IMA website.
· Engage in authentic conversations with Iowa museums to better
understand how we can provide support to further racial equity in communities.
· Reflect on biases and address racial issues in an effort to create
a more equitable, diverse, and inclusive organization.
