The workplace offers opportunities to engage in professional development that shifts power and expertise between staff members within and across departments. Shared authority in professional development lets individuals complete the value driven work that extends beyond the institution and impacts visitors, colleagues, and the field at large. In this session you will explore horizontal leadership models, and you will learn about SHIFT, a collective of professionals from diverse museums in which individuals gain power and perspective through shared skills and knowledge.
