The Cultural Competence Learning Institute (CCLI) is a process and set of resources designed to help museums increase their organizational capacity around diversity, inclusion, and culture.  Developed by a collaborative group of museum and diversity professionals, CCLI encourages institutions to identify and build from their strengths, so that they can maximize the benefits of diversity within their workforce and improve the services offered to people from different cultural backgrounds. 

Building from the document Museums, Libraries and 21st Century Skills, published by the Institute of Museum and Library Services in 2009, CCLI focuses on three 21st Century skills that are particularly relevant to helping institutions advance their cultural competency:  Creativity and Innovation, Communication and Collaboration, and Global Awareness.  CCLI introduces a framework for thinking about these 21st Century skills within the context of cultural competence and diversity, and offers accompanying tools and resources.

The Cultural Competence Learning Institute is a partnership between the following institutions:
