American Alliance of Museums
The Alliance shares practices that can advance your museum’s commitment to diversity, equity, accessibility, and inclusion.
In spring 2017, the Center for the Future of Museums (CFM) launched a FutureLab project to help museums explore new hiring practices to create more equitable workforces. Eastern State Penitentiary Historic Site was one of the first museums to sign up as a lab partner. In this CFM blog post-Matthew Murphy and Lauren Zalut, who are responsible for hiring Eastern State’s tour guides, reflect on their experiences with unbiased hiring.
