We believe that inclusion, diversity, equity and access (IDEA) are fundamental to creating and harnessing technology to serve humanity.
Here at CHM, IDEA values must live in all that we are and all that we do. They are reflected across our organization, through team members and the Board of Directors. They inform who we serve and how we learn with our communities. They live in our collections, exhibitions, programming, content, and education. We are determined to continue transforming to ensure these values are part of our daily work to impact individuals, communities, and the world.
Our commitment to these values is unwavering. Together we can and must make a difference. We look forward to continuing to learn and grow on this journey as we strive to empower everyone to understand and advance technology to shape a better future.
