Our Commitment to Diversity & Inclusion: 

At Portland Children’s Museum, we welcome and respect all families and all colleagues. We believe every human is curious, creative, and capable, with unique gifts and abilities that the world needs. We value our differences, however they may be expressed, and we know that diversity is essential to making this place a vibrant learning community.

Our learning approach takes a stance on challenging racial injustice and social intolerance in order to strengthen our democracy. We aim to create an inclusive environment by recruiting, advancing, and retaining a diverse board of directors, workforce, and volunteer corps. Currently 44% of Portland Public School students are black, indigenous, and people of color, and we strive to have our organization and outreach efforts reflect the diversity of our community.
