Member Saturday: Museums | Hubs for Change and Workforce Development
Members only. Registration required. Virtual.
As a proud fair chance employer, Eastern State is committed to providing job opportunities for previously incarcerated people, and we are not alone. Three museums located in major cities across the nation – Eastern State, The Broad in Los Angeles, and the Smithsonian in Washington D.C. – have all developed groundbreaking programs to engage and train formerly incarcerated adults (returning citizens) in museum-related professions. How can we continue to support equitable access to employment and also address the needs of a community that has often been excluded from the museum field?
Staff from Eastern State, the Broad, and the Smithsonian discuss their journeys in creating a more equitable space for returning citizens, the results of these programs, and how we can all strive to build more just institutions in our own lives.
