AAM 2024 speaker - horizontal opt 2.png

As the museum field continues to prioritize well being as a fundamental value, how

can we continue developing thriving museums that contribute to the creation of healthy, vibrant communities? This is the AAM2024 theme this year, with session tracks organized around Personal, Organizational, Community, and Society. I hope you’ll join me at AAM2024 to catch my session on Finding Your Spark: Renewing Your Professional Wellness Journey

Restoring the soul of your organization should not be a transactional or hierarchical process. In any initiative where you seek to make systemic change, it’s vital to include everyone in your organization, in all positions and levels.  From my collective work across sectors, I’ve put together a framework I call B.U.I.L.D.  Creating the conditions for empathy within the workplace removes the stigma around mental wellness and only creates additional value to our professional toolkit. It is my hope to see organizations dedicate themselves to B.U.I.L.D.-ing, one day at a time.
