@MuseumDirectors @Kitkolbert Hiring qualified women is not a supply problem, it is a demand problem.

Art Museum Directors

Campbell: lack of diversity is demand problem, not supply. Pay it forward, welcome diverse professionals into yr networks #AAMDSeattle

Art Museum Directors

.@EdwardsLange: can't diversify by repeatedly returning to the same well (e.g. Ivy Leagues). Look to #community college grads! #AAMDSeattle

In solidarity with a broad range of our colleagues throughout the cultural community, the Association of Art Museum Directors strongly opposes the proposed federal budget, which would eliminate the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), and the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), with funds only sufficient for their closure. We have been heartened by widespread, bipartisan support in Congress for the NEA, NEH, and IMLS, and the statements of senior appropriators and others who have publicly advocated for these agencies. We urge these elected representatives to continue their stand for the @neaarts, @nehgov, and IMLS, which provide vital services for people across the nation. http://bit.ly/2qglx8V ... #savethenea #savetheneh #savetheimls #artsadvocacy #humanitiesadvocacy #museumsadvocacy #museumadvocacy #speakupformuseums
