Effective and Equitable Community Engagement: Collaborating with Integrity and Reciprocity 

Join CCLI (Cultural Competence Learning Institute) to learn how museums can build effective and equitable partnerships with community organizations. This webinar will focus on the three-year Ways of Knowing partnership among Six Nations Indian Museum, Akwesasne Cultural Center, and The Wild Center, a natural history center located on the ancestral lands and original territory of the Haudenosaunee. Presenters will share how they built relationships and trust, identified mutually beneficial goals for all partnering organizations and communities, and created collaborations based on balance and reciprocity.

During this session, you will:

  • Learn statistics about community engagement in the museum field from the recently published National Landscape Study
  • Hear from leaders who have built the Ways of Knowing partnership
    • David Fadden, Artist and Director, Six Nations Indian Museum

    • Marla Jacobs, Intern, Ways of Knowing
    • Stephanie Ratcliffe, Executive Director & Jen Kretser, Director of Climate Initiatives, The Wild Center
