The GRAMMY Museum is a nonprofit organization
The GRAMMY Museum Foundation™ is dedicated to cultivating a greater understanding of the history and significance of music through exhibits, education, grants, preservation initiatives, and public programming. Paying tribute to our collective musical heritage, the Museum explores and celebrates all aspects of the art form—from the technology of the recording process to the legends who’ve made lasting marks on our cultural identity.
Today, the GRAMMY Museum fulfills its mission of making music a valued and indelible part of our society through exhibits, education, grants, and public programming.
The GRAMMY Museum explores and celebrates the enduring legacies of all forms of music; The creative process; the art and technology of the recording process; and the history of the GRAMMY awards, the premier recognition of recorded music accomplishment.
Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Accessibility
The GRAMMY Museum Foundation is committed to recognizing and celebrating inclusivity, diversity, equity, and accessibility, both internally as an employer and externally across our exhibits, programs, and education initiatives. Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion are part of our company Core Values. Like great music, success requires bringing together diverse voices. We strive to be as inclusive as the music and creators that we represent. As an organization dedicated to cultivating a greater understanding of the history and significance of music, it is our responsibility to tell the stories and contributions of music makers. Therefore we pledge:
- To make the GRAMMY Museum a welcoming and inviting place for all staff and visitors regardless of race and ethnicity, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, disability status, religion, class, indigenous heritage, and communities whose principal languages are not English
- To recognize, promote, and celebrate the contributions and impact of diverse communities to the music industry through our exhibits, both in-person and virtual
- To increase access to these exhibits by including, but not limited to, bilingual text and/or subtitles throughout the Museum and on our digital museum, GRAMMY Museum At Home and a commitment to future accessibility
- To ensure that our programs and education lessons are accessible to all individuals and communities
- To continue to offer a diverse slate of programs that feature artists, educators, and music industry professionals from diverse backgrounds
- To continue to mentor the next generation of music creators, educators, and museum leaders through education programs, internships, and outreach
- For our Board of Directors and leadership to better represent the communities we serve by ensuring a diverse make-up of individuals who will help govern and guide the GRAMMY Museum Foundation
Realizing these goals will require work and change at every level of the GRAMMY Museum, we will call upon the Recording Academy’s Department of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion to serve as both a collaborator and mentor along the way. We are strongly committed to advancing honorably as an organization and as a member of society.
