Reporting to the Chair of the Board of Directors, the Executive Director of the Stonewall National Museum & Archives (SNMA) will excite organizational growth, drive significant fundraising efforts, and commit to strengthening the inclusivity of SNMA’s collections with an eye toward being relevant in the national LGBTQ+ historical and heritage conversation, while maintaining a strong presence in the South Florida region.
Founded in 1973, the Stonewall National Museum & Archives is a 501(c)(3) cultural organization whose mission is to promote understanding through the collection, preservation, and sharing of the proud culture and heritage of LGBTQ+ people and their significant role in American society.
Stonewall National Museum & Archives is one of the leading independent museums and archives in the country solely devoted to the acquisition, preservation, and exhibition of LGBTQ+ history. Now in its 49th year of operation, SNMA offers research materials, archival collections, exhibitions, and educational and social programming that are unmatched by any other institution in the nation. Stonewall is built on four programmatic pillars: the Paul Fasana and Robert S. Graham Archive, the Stonewall National Library and Stonewall National Library Special Collection, the Stonewall Museum & Galleries, and the Stonewall National Education Program (SNEP).
SNMA is governed by a Board of Directors consisting of 17 committed local, regional, and national LGBTQ+ leaders and is supported by an impressive assembly of major national thought and action leaders in the museum-world and in the LGBTQ+ equality movement. The Board of Directors is committed to furthering the diversity and inclusivity of the LGBTQ+ community within SNMA collections, exhibits, and archives, as well as within its Board membership – consistent with the recommendations of the SNMA Anti-Racist Task Force of February 2021. SNMA's operating budget is currently supported by Board contributions, donors, state and local grants, special events, corporate sponsorships, foundation grants, and partnerships.
Stonewall National Museum & Archives (SNMA) aspires to be a voice recognized nationally as authoritative and influential in the collection, preservation, and accessibility of American LGBTQ culture and history. To do so, SNMA’s leadership understands their obligation to explore whether Black, Indigenous, Latinx, Asian and Pacific Islander communities — referred to in this document as Black, Indigenous and People of Color, or BIPOC — are equally served by SNMA’s “business-as-usual” perspectives, as well as whether its current institutional voice is fully inclusive of the diverse LGBTQ experience in the United States.
A bachelor’s degree is required for this position, as is at least five years of experience in an executive or senior leadership role within a nonprofit cultural organization, preferably with an annual budget consistent with that of SNMA. All applications must be accompanied by a cover letter and résumé. Cover letters should be responsive to the mission of Stonewall National Museum & Archives.
The salary for this role is $110,000 annually.
