The Walker is organized into departments, including visual arts, film/video, performing arts, education/community programs, new media initiatives, administration, registration, development and membership, marketing/public relations, and design/editorial. Staff members possess a variety of curatorial, educational, and administrative skills, knowledge, and interests.


The Walker is an equal opportunity and affirmative action employer: over 14% of the staff are people of color and people with disabilities; women comprise half of the Walker’s workforce, including top executive positions. Staff dedication and loyalty is evidenced by the fact that half of the current employees have from 5 to 40+ years of service.


The Walker offers an excellent benefit package to full-time staff: medical, dental, and life insurance, paid vacation time, paid holidays, a generous retirement plan, and coverage for opposite/same sex domestic partnerships. Part-time staff members who work more than 20 hours per week are also eligible for medical and dental coverage. This is just a partial list of the many benefit options offered to our remarkable staff.
