Bringing Diversity, Equity and Inclusion to American Museums’ $40 billion Endowments

In Summer 2020, American museums made public statements of solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement, and committed to addressing structural racism. Some museums are fulfilling their commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion through their investment policy. Hear from the National Gallery of Art and the Walters Art Museum about why and how they committed to working with diverse fund managers. With $40 billion in the endowments of American museums, this change cannot come fast enough.
