April Arts Education Policy Roundtable :: Principles for Equity with the Human Rights Commission

  • San Francisco Arts Commission, Veterans Building 401 Van Ness Avenue, Room 125 San Francisco, CA United States (map)

Bi-monthly Arts Education Policy Roundtable: The purpose of this forum is to provide timely information for arts provider organizations and individuals about activities and policies of agencies that support arts education programming in the Bay Area.

This month, we will have Sheryl Davis, Executive Director of the San Francisco Human Rights Commission, to discuss how our organizations can embody and support equity in the Bay Area.

The Principles for Equity in the Arts booklet created by equity fellows at YBCA is a useful tool.

Prior to joining the HRC, Director Davis was Executive Director of Collective Impact, a community-based organization in the Western Addition neighborhood of San Francisco. As Executive Director, she oversaw Mo’MAGIC, Magic Zone, and the Ella Hill Hutch Community Center. Mo’MAGIC, a collaborative of non-profit organizations, addresses challenges facing low-income children, youth and families in the areas of economic development, community health, and violence prevention. Magic Zone provides education and wraparound services to K-12 students and transitional aged youth. The Ella Hill Hutch Community Center provides community-building services and workforce development opportunities to neighborhood residents. During her tenure at Collective Impact, Director Davis forged private and public sector partnerships to provide critical health and social services to historically underserved communities across San Francisco.  

Director Davis has also served on the SFPD Fair & Impartial Policing and Community Policing Advisory Committees, Fillmore Community Benefits District, and Redevelopment Agency's Western Addition Citizen Advisory Committee. She holds a BA degree from San Francisco State University and Master's in Public Administration from the University of San Francisco.
