Taking Stock and Moving Forward – Reflecting on Our own DEAI Practices

This past year has continued to be one of renewed reflection and examination as many museums and informal learning institutions grapple with their role in perpetuating systems of power, racism, and oppression, as well as their ability to help shift narratives and engage the public in critical conversations around racism, justice, equity, and inclusion. This has included launching or reaffirming efforts to support DEAI (diversity, equity, access, and inclusion), as well as justice and belonging, creating spaces for critical conversations, producing or revamping diversity and equity statements, and/or creating cross-institutional DEAI committees or task forces. This webchat, part of the quarterly VSA DEAI webchat series, aims to support a year-end conversation to take stock of where we are on this journey – as individuals, organizations, and as a field – and what we need to commit to in the coming year to continue this work.
