To keep biases in check and create a fair and consistent recruitment experience for all, we apply principles of “blind hiring” in our application review process. Responses to the questions below will be used for an initial screening of applicants with names and addresses removed. These will be added back later in the review process.

We bring these values to our exhibitions, programs, partnerships, and organizational culture.
