Super Session: Cultural Organizations as Community Connectors: How to Promote Diversity, Equity, Accessibility, and Inclusion
Description

In order for museums, gardens, zoos, and aquariums to serve all people in their communities, staff must be aware of the societal disparities and gaps that interplay with their operations, decisions, and programs. To address this issue, Diversity, Equity, Accessibility, and Inclusion (DEAI) practices have emerged and are gaining momentum within the cultural organization field. But how can you take practical steps to develop DEAI goals at your organization to make sure that equity, accessibility, and inclusion becomes a core part of your culture and decision-making? Join Michael Moore, Blackbaud Vice President of Diversity and Inclusion, Grace Stewart, Senior Manager of DEAI Programs at the American Alliance of Museums, and Dr. Tonya Matthews, IAAM President and CEO, as they walk you through why DEAI is critical for cultural organizations and how you can become a true connector of your entire community.
