  4. Proprietary Curriculum

    The National Liberty Museum’s proprietary curriculum reflects the most current practices and research in diversity and inclusion issues–such as cultural awareness and sensitivity, unconscious bias, and inclusiveness in the workplace–supported by best practices of adult learning principles. Museum educators and workshop facilitators are well-versed in issues of diversity and inclusion based on countless historic and contemporary contexts and subject matters.

  5. Measurable Results

    Surveys are administered to all participants at the end of every National Liberty Museum’s Diversity & Inclusion training program and a follow-up online survey two weeks after the engagement. Through the National Liberty Museum’s Diversity & Inclusion training, participants will be in a position to apply what they learned in the workplace and communicate and act in a more inclusive manner. All Diversity & Inclusion training participants will:

    • Have increased knowledge and awareness of how diversity and inclusiveness impact the workplace.
    • Have increased knowledge and awareness of how their own behaviors and the behaviors of others contribute to or detract from an inclusive workplace.
