This webinar series explores the important public
dimension of museums through the lens of AAM’s landmark publication, Excellence
and Equity: Education and the Public Dimension of Museums. Next generation and
veteran museum leaders from various disciplines engage in a thought-provoking
discourse about how far we have (or haven’t) come in addressing and advocating
for the museum’s role as an educational institution.
