Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The Historical Society of Saginaw County is committed to serving the community by telling the continuing story of the people of the Saginaw region through exploration, preservation and presentation of their historical and cultural heritage. We are currently focusing our efforts in the areas of growth, people, preservation and presentation and funding.

We have updated our five year strategic plan including our focus areas. We are raising awareness through our marketing plan; We are using and updating a specific development plan for our board and staff to expand; We are working on our collections plan and we are working hard to raise additional funds.

We have a talented and dedicated board of directors, staff and volunteer base. We are all committed to telling the story of the Saginaw region and we are in the second phase of implementing our strategic plan.

Our annual number of visitors has increased, our programs are well attended and response to our changes from the community has been very positive. We have made significant progress on our collections plan.

Data
  • We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
  • We ask team members to identify racial disparities in their programs and / or portfolios.
  • We analyze disaggregated data and root causes of race disparities that impact the organization's programs, portfolios, and the populations served.
  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We disaggregate data by demographics, including race, in every policy and program measured.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • We have a promotion process that anticipates and mitigates implicit and explicit biases about people of color serving in leadership positions.
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We measure and then disaggregate job satisfaction and retention data by race, function, level, and/or team.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
