    BOARD OF DIRECTORS

    DIVERSITY, EQUITY, ACCESS AND INCLUSION STATEMENT

    As the Amelia Island Museum of History pursues its mission of preserving, protecting, and promoting the unique history of Amelia Island, we also strive to respect, value, and celebrate the broad diversity of the people we serve.

    Museums are important vehicles for telling the stories of who we are, where we’ve been, and what we have learned along the way. For the picture to be complete, it is imperative that the diversity of the individuals, events and cultures that make up this island’s history be represented to the fullest and made accessible to all. By seeking out diversity, equality, and inclusion we believe we become a better and stronger institution. To this end, we strive for members, partners, and key stakeholders to join us in reflecting and embracing these same values.
