A survey conducted in 2017 by the AAM and BoardSource examined museum board leadership and found that nearly half (46 percent) of museum boards are entirely white, but only 10 percent of museum boards have developed a plan of action to become more inclusive.
The AAM revealed the name of museums to take part in a national initiative referred to as Facing Change: Advancing Museum Board Diversity & Inclusion. Among the museums included are UC Berkley Art Museum and the Weisman Art Museum located at the University of Minnesota. [The American Alliance of Museums]
