As the demographics of California continue to shift dramatically, museums must ensure we actively and intentionally engage with our diverse communities. 

Our program features museums that have successfully collaborated with their communities to promote dialogue around the topics of diversity, race, and inclusion. Join us and hear these museum success stories and learn implementation strategies for your museum. Our panelists include:

  • Rene de Guzman, Senior Curator of Art, Oakland Museum of California. Curator for All Power to the People: Black Panthers at 50.

  • Laura Callen, Founder and Director, Adoption Museum Project: Co-curator of Operation Babylift, in partnership with the Presidio Trust.

  • Kilani Louis, Program Manager, Proud of my Family theme weekend celebrating LGBTQ families at the Children’s Discovery Museum of San Jose.

  • Jamie Lee Evans, Co-Founder and Co-Director of the Foster Youth Museum, in partnership with USF.

The event will be moderated by Tom Izu, Executive Director of the California History Center Foundation and Audrey Edna Butcher Civil Liberties Education Initiative, De Anza College.

A reception will follow from 7-8 pm in Thacher Gallery, located in Gleeson Library/Geschke Center, at 2495 Golden Gate Avenue.
