Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
The Huntington, at its core, is a collections-based nonprofit institution that supports and promotes the humanities, the arts, and botanical science. Fundamental to the work that we do is our community–both internal and external–the staff, our Boards, volunteers, scholars from around the world who conduct advanced research using the collections, and our public audiences. We recognize the value of our diverse perspectives and life experiences: these are the rich elements of a respectful, robust, productive, and creative environment that enable us to fulfill our mission and sustain the institution as it continues to evolve. Arabella and Henry Huntington created this institution 100 years ago to "promote the public welfare." This strategic plan is fully focused on the intent of the founders and our commitment to preserve, build, and share our treasured collections for the benefit of a global community Together, we will nurture a culture of belonging and excellence that is fundamental to this place we hold so dear.
