Strengthening DEIA Goals through Collaboration: Strategies for Building Community Partnerships

Relationships and people are at the core of archival community outreach. Join us as we help you develop or strengthen partnerships centered on Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Accessibility (DEIA) principles. Trust, honesty, respect and consistency are key to establishing sustainable and meaningful collaborative community partnerships. In this webcast, you will learn how to center DEIA principles in your community outreach initiatives in order to sustain authentic partnerships that continuously activate archival materials via instruction, exhibitions, programming and collection development. Our Community Partnership Toolkit is intended to guide institutions in achieving inclusive, equitable and impactful outcomes. Participants will walk away with strategies that will help them develop practices that extend beyond collecting, and one-time events and programming.

Upon completion of this course you’ll be able to:

  • Identify strategies for developing or strengthening existing community partnerships 
  • Develop a people-centered approach to effectively engage community stakeholders
  • Learn strategies to pitch initiatives, develop programming and establish buy-in from stakeholders
