In 2015, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation issued a report on diversity in art museums that reinforced what is obvious to anyone working in or affiliated with the industry: non-Hispanic white men dominate leadership positions, and there is a lack of diversity in religion, ability, sexual orientation, or geographic origin at the executive levels and in the board rooms. The survey catalyzed a major movement toward a more diversified art and museum world, and The Phillips Collection is taking part in that change.
