Brenda Salguero is currently the Education Director at the Hayward Area Historical Society. She found museums, with their informal approach to education, to be an ideal setting for her. In 2014, Brenda graduated from John F. Kennedy University with a Masters in Museum Studies and Business Administration. Her thesis, "Hanging Mirrors: Reflections on Women of Color, Leadership, and Representation within Museums" focuses on women of color in positions of leadership or authority, examining how their decisions increased representation of people of color within museums. Brenda still works with John F. Kennedy museum department developing and holding cultural sensitivity workshops for incoming students. She is also a board member of the Bay Area Emerging Museum Professionals. Promoting understanding and representation of women and people of color within society is one of her strongest passions. She pursues this goal in all of her activities, hoping someday it will create an equal society.
