OMCA’s Redesign and Anti-Racism Journey

During 2020-21, the OMCA staff and Board have engaged in a process of deep self-reflection as well as action to become a more equitable, inclusive and anti-racist museum. At the same time, after 15 months of closure due to the impacts of COVID-19, OMCA had to make the difficult decision to reduce its overall budget, resulting in a reduction of about 15% of its staff. The Museum, therefore, underwent an inclusive redesign process from January through March 2021, engaging all staff in a series of more than 30 workshops and discussions about both advancing the Museum’s commitment to becoming an equitable institution and thoughtfully engaging in conversations around the OMCA budget, compensation philosophy, and fundraising.

The result was an organizational restructuring, born from the imaginations and visioning of our staff, that represents a hybrid of cross-functional and functional units grounded in four “north stars:” anti-racism, innovation, collaboration, and leadership development. Our newly-redesigned organizational structure creates more opportunities for shared leadership and collaboration. You can learn more about OMCA’s anti-racism journey here
