Diversity & Inclusion
HAI is a historical consulting company founded on a belief in history’s value to the public at large. Our expertise in the field often involves confronting the inequities that have existed across time, including how they manifest today. We believe that, as a field, history should reckon with competing perspectives and amplify underrepresented voices with authenticity and care. A major part of this effort is ensuring that the practitioners of public history reflect the wide breadth of people who have histories worth learning, sharing, and preserving. HAI is committed to creating a workplace that celebrates and empowers a diverse team of public historians and archivists. We know that we can do better to foster this goal, and will continue to strive toward it.
History Associates is an equal opportunity employer. We believe that employing and supporting a team of professionals who have diverse backgrounds and perspectives makes us a better historical consulting firm. Our hiring and promotion decisions are based solely on qualifications, merit, and business need.
