  • Registration Closed

Webinar Description 

Would you like an easy-to-use workbook that guides your organization in assessing policies and practices? Could your board of directors benefit from learning more about its role in operating a museum, historic house, or site? If so, then it’s time to join the 1,100 organizations already enrolled in the Standards and Excellence Program for History Organizations (STEPS). STEPS is a self-paced, self-assessment program for small- and mid-size organizations including those managed solely by volunteers. With a recently updated workbook that contains expanded guidance for essential topics like diversity and inclusion, you will be able to gain a birds-eye view of your organization.

Is your organization ready for self-assessment? Join us for this free, one-hour webinar to hear how STEPS can help your organization create a road map for meaningful change.

Note: This webinar is for organizations that are considering enrolling in the STEPS. Organizations already enrolled in the program are invited invited to register for the “STEPS Orientation” webinar taking place on February 17, 2021.
