Boston Children's Museum will implement a series of professional development activities for its staff and Board to expand cultural competency and establish sustainable equity, diversity, and inclusion practices and programs. The museum will engage a consultant to lead a program of organizational change management to build trust and collaboration through workshops designed to strengthen communication skills, foster cultural competency, and provide opportunities for leadership development. Staff at all levels will develop a shared understanding of the museum's equity, diversity, and inclusion strategies and practices and their role in creating an inclusive work environment. The museum's audiences will benefit from the staff's expanded capacity to encourage positive intergroup behaviors and attitudes, and address issues of prejudice and bias. The museum's evaluator will develop and administer a variety of tools for staff, trustees, and visitors to evaluate progress toward the project goals.
