About the event
The pandemic accelerated widespread change in the concept of work, the process of work, and the role of the workplace in social justice and equity, and has left many museums questioning their organizational structures, business models, and roles in communities. While museums rebuild, reorganize, and reconnect, employees are questioning their roles in influencing and implementing change within their museums and communities, and many are rethinking how to rebalance work and personal well-being. Museums are not immune to the rift between leadership and staff we see happening in other sectors.
MuseumExpert.org is starting a new, four-part series of online events to address these issues. Over the next several months, we will work with YOU, our community of museum people, to define problems, identify barriers that inhibit constructive dialogue within museums, and work toward solutions.
The series begins November 16 by welcoming Wendy Wolff, MPH, Director of Strategic Engagement at Maryland Nonprofits, who will provide an overview of issues in today’s nonprofit workforce. Subsequent events will narrow the focus to museums and other non-formal learning environments, discuss barriers to progress, and explore solutions.
Subsequent events will shift to a workshop format, with participant-led activities that will focus on issues most relevant to the museum/non-formal learning sector, discuss barriers to progress, and explore solutions. All sessions will be online and free of charge to participants.
