IDEA is at the core of the work we do as an institution to build relevance and accomplish the museum’s mission.
Ongoing and intentional work to ensure TMA is a welcoming space for visitors, volunteers and staff of all backgrounds, identities, abilities, perspectives and beliefs. Inclusion requires people to value, respect and accept diversity.
Honoring, respecting and reflecting difference including but not limited to age, gender, religion, sexual orientation, ethnicity, race, ancestry, national origin, socio-economic status and physical ability.
A commitment to providing multiple points of access and eliminating barriers to participation for visitors of all backgrounds, abilities, and ages in order to ensure that all members of the community are treated fair and just.
The design of programs, products, devices, services and environments meets the needs of all visitors to ensure full participation in TMA programming.
