  • Community Engagement

The diverse histories, cultures, perspectives, and experiences of the Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander (AANHPI) diaspora are often missing from or kept to the edges of diversity, equity, accessibility, and inclusion (DEAI) efforts in the museum sector. This session will provide participants an opportunity to consider and reflect upon the narratives that continue to impact AANHPI communities and potential steps that individual and organizational allies can take to improve meaningful inclusion and access.
