About the Work

At Oregon Humanities, we strive to always be learning and reflecting on our work. Here's where we share what we learn as we refine our programs and practices.

Strategic Framework

This strategic framework will help us, in an ongoing moment of economic, social, and political uncertainty, create conditions in which Oregonians from all parts of the state can connect across differences of background, experience, and belief to consider key questions, respond to shared challenges, and imagine and work toward stronger communities. In developing this framework, we have updated our mission, sharpened our focus on three key organizational values and articulated what these values mean in action, identified several animating tensions, and set out goals and strategies for the next several years. Read the entire 2021–25 Strategic Framework.

Equity and Inclusion at Oregon Humanities

In 2024, Oregon Humanties staff members significantly revised our 2017 Equity and Inclusion Lens. Equity and Inclusion at Oregon Humanities [PDF] serves as an overview of our approach to equity, inclusion, and accessibility, highlighting the importance of reducing disparities in every decision and action we undertake and providing steps we can follow in order to continue improving our work.
