Building and Nurturing DEAI Committees: Theory and practice in museums
August 20 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDTFree
Establishing a diversity, equity, accessibility, and inclusion (DEAI) committee or task force can be a critical step in prioritizing equity work. Indeed, in moments that call museums to respond to current events, DEAI committees can provide a foundation from which to speak and act. Join CCLI (Cultural Competence Learning Institute) to hear how to structure and support successful DEAI committees. Learn about critical factors such as committee composition and leadership, purpose and scope, facilitation, decision-making, and senior leadership involvement.
During this session, you will:
- Learn statistics on DEAI committees in the museum field from the forthcoming National Landscape Study
- Hear museum leaders from CCLI alumni organizations share their experiences with DEAI committees
- Join a Q&A on effectively structuring and supporting DEAI committees
