New York, August 28, 2018 – The Association of Art Museum Curators has opened registration for its upcoming Workshop on Inclusive Hiring. The goal of this half-day program is to discuss and analyze the inclusivity of hiring processes and workplace culture within art organizations. 

During the program, some of the areas we will consider include the developing and disseminating available positions, interviewing execution, welcoming of new team members and creating positive internal environments.  We hope that through this learning day of considering terminology, methodology, and best practices, that participants will become actively engaged with Human Resource teams within their organizations to advance discussions of enacting change in established processes.

The Workshop on Inclusive Hiring will include multiple voices leading discussions and sharing their experiences on topics of developing inclusive work environments, including Eduardo Díaz, Director, Smithsonian Latino Center; Kaywin Feldman, Nivin and Duncan MacMillan Director and President, Minneapolis Institute of Art; Lane Harwell, Program Officer, Creativity and Free Expression, Ford Foundation; Mitchell Karp, Partner, VallotKarp; Angela Vallot, Partner, VallotKarp; Allison Rutledge-Parisi, Vice President, Chief Human Resource Officer, The Metropolitan Museum of Art; Cecile Shellman, Diversity Catalyst, Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh; and Kimberly Wilson, Chief Human Resources Officer, Deputy Director Human Resources, Volunteers, and Community Service, Virginia Museum of Fine Arts.

This program is organized and supported by the AAMC, and is open to both current members and nonmembers.  The half-day workshop will be held at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, on Monday, October 29, 1:00pm – 4:30pm.  Should you wish to register for the program, which is has a seating capacity of 45 participants, please do so here:
