Jill Medvedow, Director of the Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston, Receives The Boston Club’s 2022 Women in Business Racial Equity Ally Award
The Boston Club is pleased to announce that Jill Medvedow, the Ellen Matilda Poss Director of the Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston, is the recipient of the 2022 Women in Business Racial Equity Ally Award. Medvedow accepted her award at the Boston Club’s annual Corporate Salute on November 15th.
The Women in Business Racial Equity Ally Award allows The Boston Club to annually recognize a leader in the business community who demonstrates a commitment to the development of all women and people of color through access to jobs, mentorship, and community support.
“I am so pleased that The Boston Club recognizes racial equity as a core component of their mission. My work at the ICA, in collaboration with program partners, artists, staff, and boards, has long focused on a radical welcome, representation, and visibility for women artists and artists of color. This award shines a light on our collective work.” said Medvedow.
Under Medvedow’s leadership, the ICA has grown its audience and impact and transformed into a collecting museum housed in a stunning new facility with a commitment to diversity and expanding the narratives of art history—the majority of artists in the museum’s collection identify as women and/or artists of color. The ICA now welcomes over a quarter–million visitors annually.
