Mission/Diversity Statements

Mission Statement
The Taft Museum of Art welcomes all people to experience a world-renowned collection in a beautiful historic house in Cincinnati. Through its intimate presentation of Anna Sinton and Charles Phelps Taft’s treasures and its engaging exhibitions, programs, and activities, the Museum creates enjoyment and learning opportunities for all.

Diversity Statement
The Taft Museum of Art respects the dignity of all people and values what each member of our team brings to the organization. Accordingly, the Museum is committed to building an inclusive environment that welcomes and values diversity. This includes our staff, board of directors, volunteers and visitors. As an organization we recognize the importance of attracting and retaining talented people of different backgrounds. We understand how a diverse work team of staff, board of directors and volunteers benefits our organization by enabling us to draw upon a richness of resources. We want all our team members to feel appreciated for their uniqueness, so we work to foster an environment that provides everyone equal access to information and opportunities. This ensures that each person learns, grows, excels and maximizes his or her personal contributions. The Museum will thus be able to tap into a greater wealth of knowledge, perspectives, and experiences to develop and deliver programs and services to an increasingly diverse audience.
