Episode 8 of Museum Way is available now! This November, the museum celebrated its 7th anniversary! Since opening our doors on November 11, 2011, we’ve welcomed over 4 million visitors from around the world to experience the art, architecture, and nature that Crystal Bridges has to offer. On today’s episode, we’re talking about our museum mission to welcome all! We talk with Brittany Johnson, Co-Chair of the museum’s IDEA committee, which addresses inclusion, diversity, equity, and access. Then we talk with Rachel Tucker, our Senior Content Specialist, to share how we reach visitors across our social media channels and more.
Brittany is the eCommunications Coordinator on Crystal Bridges’ Communications team! In her role, she handles all of the museum’s email marketing, working within a database that includes memberships, ticket sales, visitor experience, and more. She makes decision about who we email and when we send emails, and she keeps track of our visitor’s email preferences. In addition to her role as eCommunications Coordinator, she is the Co-Chair of the museum’s IDEA committee, which addresses inclusion, diversity, equity, and access. Our IDEA committee focuses on each of these four pillars in terms of internal staff relations, hiring practices, and making the museum a great place to work. On this episode, Brittany will share all about the committee and its goals within the museum.
