The Adirondack Experience will partner with The Wild Center to build the capacity of both institutions to better understand and address the needs, interests, and expectations of the central Adirondacks' diverse populations. Working closely with a team of consultants and diversity and inclusion project advisors, the two museums will conduct audience research with African American and Latino communities. These groups are currently underrepresented in the institutions' audiences, staff, and boards. Full-time and seasonal staff at the museums will participate in cultural competency training. The museums will establish institutional diversity task forces; update recruitment, retention, and professional development policies and procedures; and create a regional community of practice.
