The Rock Hall's mission to engage, teach and inspire through the power of rock & roll is important. Learn about our history, building, economic impact and more.
DIVERSITY, EQUITY, & INCLUSION
Rock & roll is a diverse and inclusive art form that mirrors and shapes the times. Artists have been a voice of change and advocates for social justice for generations and the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame shares this through our intentional curation of exhibits, programs, and outreach. The Rock Hall values all by embracing talents, perspectives, and experiences. We intentionally foster a diverse and equitable environment that encourages creativity and innovation by valuing, empowering, and respecting all people. We provide all Team Members equal access to information, development, and opportunity. By creating an environment that welcomes all, where each person feels accepted, appreciated, and safe, we aim to leverage our Team and grow its diverse people, skills, and ideas.
Our definition of diversity encompasses structural, social, and cultural differences that form the basis of inequality in our society, including race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, age, ability, religious beliefs, citizenship status, country of origin, and other ideologies.
Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion is more than just a policy. It supports our mission and defines our future.

The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame is itself a non-profit organization, but we provide generous in-kind support to the hundreds of worthwhile organizations located throughout Northeast Ohio. In 2008, we donated more than $80,000 to support local events and charitable causes.
In 2015, the Rock Hall was one of just 25 nonprofits designated a member of the “Commission 50" by a Greater Cleveland Partnership program called the Commission on Economic Inclusion. This honor recognizes the organization's significant accomplishments regarding diversity and inclusion.
Rock Hall EDU is a free online tool for teachers who want to bring our mission to engage, teach, and inspire through the power of rock & roll in their own classrooms. Here you’ll find videos, activities, artifacts, playlists, and other materials we’ve created and curated specifically for educators.
Library & Archives
Our Library & Archives is the most comprehensive repository of materials relating to the history of rock & roll. We collect, preserve, and provide free access to these resources for scholars, educators, students, journalists, and the general public in order to broaden awareness and understanding of rock & roll, its roots, and its impact on our society.
