MAM strives to better represent the diversity of the regional community. This internship provides opportunities for growth and development of students from communities typically underrepresented in the museum field, providing a professional bridge to museum careers.

MAM Values and Diversity Statement:
As an organization, we value: artistic inspiration, diversity of voices, individual and group creativity, and the importance of all arts to a civil, inclusive, and forward-thinking society. We respect and welcome individual differences and strive to maintain an environment that fosters productivity, creativity, and individual satisfaction by celebrating the diversity of race, gender, nationality, age, religion, sexual orientation, and physical abilities.
