Beyond the Statements: Leading Racial Equity in Humanities Organizations with Tonya Aikens


Hosted by Maryland Humanities

Cost: Free

At a time when many organizations have put out public statements in support of Black Lives Matter and in opposition to White supremacy, dismantling our organizational inequities remains an elusive next step. Maryland Humanities invites you to join us for a speaker series focused on operationalizing racial equity work in the humanities field. Leaders from Maryland will speak to the efforts they have led in their respective organizations. Topics covered will include incorporating racial equity into hiring, where to start when leading an organization, and leading the work within a university setting.

Join Tonya Aikens, President & CEO of Howard County Library System, with moderator Alicia McLeod, Executive Director of Challenging Racism and Maryland Humanities Board Member.

Tue, 05/25 — 5/28.

Docomomo US National Symposium: Crossroads of Modern America



Cost: Free

Join us for the 2020-21 Docomomo US National Symposium where we explore our thematic vision which views innovation and change through the lens of the modern movement. Experience Chicago’s history and the prospects for the recognition, interpretation, preservation and extension of these forms and ideas of modernism in the middle of America.

While we will not physically be together, the online format will provide excellent opportunities for participating in educational sessions, experiencing tours, and connecting with speakers, sponsors and each other. We also find it exciting that virtual events break down many of the financial and geographic barriers to participation for what we expect will be our largest Symposium attendance ever.
