The New England Aquarium must engage the broadest possible constituency in our efforts to protect the blue planet. A diverse workforce can provide experiences, skills and perspectives that will enrich programs, strengthen problem solving, add creativity and enhance our work environment. By focusing on diversity, the Aquarium will be able to attract, serve and engage a broad constituency, consistent with the region’s changing demographics.
The Aquarium has a multi-year Diversity Plan that acknowledges where we are today, recognizes successes we can build on and suggests what we must do to make the institution more inclusive, more diverse in targeted areas and better-equipped to reach and serve diverse communities.
The New England Aquarium is also proud to be a founding member of the Commonwealth Compact, which aligns with and reinforces our own Diversity Plan goals.
