Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Plan

The Santa Barbara Trust for Historic Preservation has created a Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Plan to help implement our strategic plan and reach our goal of modeling best practices and achieving national standards in our field.  


Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Policy Statement​



The Presidio Neighborhood and Santa Barbara County more broadly has a rich history of diversity which continues to characterize our community. We celebrate that diversity as an intrinsic part of the American experience, a source of strength in our work, and for the cultivation of a vibrant community. We actively work towards inclusion as part of our organizational culture, and access to our sites and programs for the broadest possible public value.
