As our globalizing world gets smaller, audiences at home and abroad become ever more diverse. This panel discusses the museum professions and outlines the academic training needed for the emerging generation of exhibition designers, curators, educators, and conservators for the 21st century, when museum teams must integrate across disciplines for a holistic approach to visitor experience. How do museums create inclusive exhibitions and programs relevant to both local and global communities? Who are the professionals that create these exhibitions, and how is their work adapting to this new reality? The panelists also discuss their own paths to museum professions, and entry to career paths within museums and related fields today.
