Welcome to "Agents of Change"
Bringing human-centered change to museums, nonprofits and beyond
Welcome to “Agents of Change,” a newsletter starting this fall about how we can bring human-centered change to our work in museums, nonprofits, and beyond. I’ve been engaged in strategies of change for more than a decade now through my work and activism in the museum field, and I’m excited to take this new step to share and reflect on what I have learned over the years.
I believe that we all have a role to play in demanding, creating, and supporting the change we need to see in the institutions that shape public life. But that change cannot truly start until we first look inside ourselves.
I see “Agents of Change” as a space to expand our conversations around change, share new and ever-evolving ideas that can help us all advance change, and bring those strategies to our organizations. I am launching this newsletter so that it can become a resource and guide for those stepping up to become changemakers in their own organizations and communities, and to bring people together around key issues, questions, and strategies to make this change happen.
I believe that it is the deeply human act of love that is the utmost core of our work to transform organizations into more generous, welcoming places that center community, equity, connection, and care.
And that’s exactly where we’ll begin.
Subscribe to join this conversation and be a part of this growing community of passionate changemakers.
A different future is possible, and it is up to us to make this happen together!
