Our Museum’s Journey Toward Equity and Anti-Racism: The Leadership of our Staff

In 2020, more than 50 staff members from the Oakland Museum of California (OMCA) actively participated in examining the Museum's culture and structure and put forth recommendations to move the organization toward becoming a more anti-racist institution. The staff formed into self-designated and self-directed Anti-Racist Design Teams (ADTs) and met intensively over a three-month process that assessed various aspects of the Museum’s programming, working processes, and community engagement, with staff at every level of the organization taking part in the process.
