One by One Project #3

AAM Conference, 8 June 2021, online

Who’s in the Room? Equity, Inclusion, and Diversity in the Digital Landscape

A panel led by Dr Haitham Eid, in which essential questions about equity, inclusion, and diversity within museums’ digital workforce and their implications for successful digital leadership were confronted—in human terms, not just business and technological ones. This panel drew on the latest work from the One by One international research initiative investigating and addressing inequities that exist in the professional landscape of digital change.
