Diversity, Equity, Accessibility, and Inclusion
In 2017 the Penn Museum began a new three-year project, Global Guides: Immigrant Stories Tour Program, which hires immigrants and refugees to interpret the Penn Museum collection while sharing personal stories about life in their home countries. The program managers will
discuss the design, implementation, and resources needed for the program, while two Global Guides from the Middle East Galleries will describe their own experiences in training and leading tours, allowing participants to gain insights on how to implement a program like this
within their museum.
