New Perspectives, New Institution: Simple Ways Youth Can Broaden Your Organization’s Outlook (2019 Design Matters Conference)

Lauren Wilson, National Building Museum

Design organizations and the greater museum field face similar problems when it comes to diverse representation in staff or diverse perspectives involved in programming. Sitting at the intersection of these fields, the National Building Museum’s Teen Council, a leadership and ambassador program for young adults, is one avenue for welcoming in diverse perspectives and voices. The Museum’s Director of Community Engagement will share WHY it’s important for any type of organization to make space for youth in their work and HOW it can be done through sharing best practices, lessons learned, impact, road blocks, and what’s ahead. This session includes discussion and brainstorming among attendees to develop strategies and talking points to bring back to their organization.
