Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI)

Capital Experience Lab exists to promote human flourishing in Washington, DC, an incredible ecosystem of learning enlivened by the world’s largest museum, education, and research complex and countless other communities of creativity. CapX offers students the academic and emotional support they need to leverage the resources of our ecosystem in the service of their dreams. We exist to deconstruct barriers to access and increase the number of arts and science leaders of color in DC and the US.

How should our commitment to equity affect our student and teacher experiences?

When equity is present, all participants feel welcome in the space, secure regardless of whether they fail or succeed in the short term, and celebrated for being their true selves.

"CapXLab inspires people to be themselves."
