Webinar Description

Organizational strengthening within the museum sector is more important than ever. Museum’s must build the capacities needed to continually evolve, operate efficiently, and serve their communities. Due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and nation-wide racial reckoning, museums urgently need to strengthen their abilities to adapt to changes in their environment (adaptive capacity), work in relation to others (relational capacity), and address audience responsiveness. Presenters from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) and Partners for Public Good (PPG) will discuss the findings from their recent Market Analysis and Opportunity Assessment of Museum Capacity Building Programs report.
