Captain Avery Museum strives to be a welcoming and inclusive museum. We recognize and acknowledge that multiple groups have contributed to the vibrant tapestry of Chesapeake Bay identity and heritage, but many voices, perspectives and accomplishments have been lost, forgotten, or minimized. The Museum's Board, Staff, and Committees are dedicated to breaking this pattern, and we affirm a strong organizational commitment to Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Accessibility goals and culture. We will intentionally operate in a collaborative and engaging manner, ensuring we have activities and exhibits that reach the widest possible audience.
Our goal is to address the barriers to full inclusion that continue to impact historically underrepresented groups and build a more diverse and inclusive community where differences are valued and respected, and where all members of our community are fully engaged participants in our mission.
