Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

In today’s increasingly globalized world, organizations both large and small are being tasked with managing a more diverse workforce than ever.

As a museum dedicated to “liberty,” the National Liberty Museum is uniquely committed and qualified to help your organization achieve its Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DE&I) goals. Not only does DE&I perfectly align with our mission, we provide a museum setting that enriches our proprietary curriculum with both interactive and immersive experiences.

The NLM has created dynamic training programs for Diversity, Equity & Inclusion that are based on research and best practices in DE&I and are specifically designed to meet the needs of diverse learners. The NLM’s facilitators have in-depth experience and are highly skilled on the topics of DE&I within the corporate, non-profit and education sectors.

The National Liberty Museum offers its Diversity, Equity & Inclusion programs in two formats:
1. Workshops (on these topics):
oo
Developing Cultural Awareness
ooUnderstanding & Reducing Unconscious/Implicit Bias
ooDiversity, Equity & Inclusion in the Workplace

2. Workplace Inclusion Training: a 3-day Intensive Program

Please click on the options above, or use the navigation bar on the left, to see which format works best for your company/organization. For questions, please contact Kevin Orangers at 215-925-2800, ext. 133 or email diversity@libertymuseum.org.

Welcome the Stranger, a one-woman exhibit of cast glass, ceramics, and mixed media by artist Micaela Amateau Amato, will be on display in our GlassAccess Gallery from March 9 - June 9, 2019. This collection of works is Amato's interpretation of modern and historic figures who rose like “superheroes” to accept seemingly impossible challenges of liberty. Shown here are cast glass sculptures of Harriet Tubman and Eleanor Roosevelt.
