This International Women's Day, join us to discuss the opportunities and challenges facing cultural institutions at this moment.

With significant changes in the world, from the impact of the global pandemic to ongoing conflicts and a call to respond better to local audiences, what does museum leadership look like through these tumultuous times? How has global engagement changed in the wake of COVID-19?

This panel responds to a 2019 study of the global activities of ten museums across Canada. Returning to this research following the pandemic, they seek to assess the impact of the pandemic on cultural institutions.

This panel discussion is supported in part by funding from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council.
