Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Accessibility (IDEA) Policy Statement 

The La Jolla Historical Society recognizes that the values of inclusion, diversity, equity, and accessibility are integral to our mission and to ensuring the well-being of the constituents and communities we serve.  We acknowledge that the rich cultural legacy of La Jolla is not the result of efforts by a few citizens or a singular group. Rather, it is the culmination of contributions, large and small, from a diverse citizenry of many backgrounds, ethnicities, ages, and interests. 

The La Jolla Historical Society is committed to providing a platform that encompasses a wide range of voices and lived experiences. We aspire to bring meaning and relevance through our mission-delivery profile of exhibitions, publications, educational programs, historic preservation activities, archive and collection research access, and community events.  Our exhibitions, most programs, and archival research access are freely available to the public. We continue to seek and engage people of all backgrounds as we foster a culture of respect, learning, and integrity. 

This Policy statement was adopted by the Board of Directors on July 26, 2021.
