AAM LGBTQ Welcoming Guidelines Local Discussion

November 9, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm


The American Alliance of Museums (AAM) in collaboration with COSI, the Columbus Museum of Art and the Ohio History Connection is presenting a local colleague discussion, AAM LGBTQ Welcoming Guidelines: Overview, Issues, and Actions, on November 9th from 1pm – 3pm at the Ohio History Connection and we invite you to join us for this important conversation.

The goal of these local convenings is to help museum colleagues better understand how to use the Welcoming Guidelines and how they can be applied in all types of institutions. Participants will briefly discuss the goals of the Welcoming Guidelines, review the document, and work through an exercise that is relevant to their institution. Participants are encouraged to download and read the LGBTQ Welcoming Guidelines for Museums prior to attending a local convening.
