Reflections on Diversity, Equity, Accessibility and Inclusion at 2017 AAM Annual Meeting

An EdComversation Online Discussion

July 20, 2017
2:00-3:00 p.m. (Eastern)

Join colleagues from EdCom, DivCom and CARE to reflect on the 2017 AAM Annual Meeting. Featuring 900 presenters and 285 exhibitors, many sessions, discussions, and activities of the conference addressed diversity, equity, accessibility and inclusion in museums. We are excited to facilitate this EdComversation so that the annual meeting discussions continue with those who attended, and those who were unable to attend. Guest panelists will reflect on their own experiences at the conference, and address reflections from those in the audience. We encourage EdComversation registrants to email us ideas for discussion from your experience at the annual meeting.
