  • Leadership/Careerpath

How can all museum professionals (emerging and veterans alike) serve as true leaders in their organizations, regardless of their respective positions? While the action of taking the lead" better prepares us to evolve into traditional leadership roles, that may not be the most important reason to do it. Join us to discuss what it might look like to flatten organizational hierarchies, lead from the middle, cultivate learning organizations, as well as seek and promote opportunities (not necessarily titles) for leadership. #DiggingDeeper
