The North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences will train staff members on the design and delivery of accessible content for its public programs and exhibits. The museum will engage the Institute for Human Centered Design to facilitate training, guide the testing process, and evaluate a model for sustainability. All 144 staff members will participate in five trainings, increasing staff's competency in accessibility and inclusion. The staff members who work most closely with visitors will participate in a hands-on program that supports the facilitation of systemic institutional change. The museum will establish an advisory committee of diverse community partners to ensure that the needs of external audiences are consistently represented.
