IBJ Podcast: Newfields’ new board chair is leading inclusion effort

The Newfields board last month elected Darrianne Christian as its new chair, making her the first Black woman to lead the museum’s board.

Christian was already serving on the board in February when the Newfields president resigned following allegations of racial bias. Christian, who was then the board’s only African American member, led the effort to develop the institution’s new plan to embrace diversity, equity, inclusion and access.

Christian talks with host Mason King about what the museum is doing to get past the controversy and how her background growing up in poverty is helping her move Newfields in new directions.
