About BAM

The Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) is where art and community intersect.

BAM is a multi-arts center located in Brooklyn, New York. For more than 160 years, BAM has been the home for adventurous artists, staff, audiences, and ideas—engaging both global and local communities.

With world-renowned programming in theater, dance, music, opera, film, and much more, BAM showcases the work of emerging artists and innovative modern masters.

As an institution, BAM is re-engaging its people – from artists to staff – in rediscovering collective joy through human connection and shared experiences. It is inviting its audiences to do the same while supporting ever- expansive, imaginative, and powerful programming.

The Opportunity

BAM’s magic is its people. As BAM enters its next chapter, it seeks an exceptional Chief People Officer (CPO) to help transform the organization’s approach to Human Resources (HR) and Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI).

This is an extraordinary opportunity for a remarkable leader to join a pioneering organization and lead a group of passionate and talented stakeholders in leveraging art as a catalyst for belonging, at a time when many feel more disconnected than ever before.

Reporting to the President, the CPO will bring visionary leadership and clear, open communication to all areas of BAM’s HR and DEI work, providing oversight of talent, culture, and belonging. This work will be done in partnership with staff and Board. The CPO will support the strategic planning process as a member of the senior leadership team.
