"When history has its eyes on us, what does this mean for museums? I believe it means that we can’t simply do what we’ve always done." AAMD's new president is Lori Fogarty, director of Oakland Museum of California. Read her remarks to the membership here - a call to action not to "throw away our shot" at pushing toward diversity, equity, inclusion and access in the museum field.
