  • Leadership/Careerpath
For decades museum professionals at conferences have lamented the lack of equity and inclusion in our field, but little has subsequently changed inside our organizations. Talk is not enough. Action is required. Join this session for workshop-style activities involving actionable next steps to becoming a better white ally and gatekeeper in your institution. If you attended this session last year in Edmonton, return to check in and set your intentions for the next year. #bravespace
