The Cultural Competence Learning Institute (CCLI)

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 builds capacity for institutions to maximize the benefits of diversity within their workforce and improve the services offered to people from different cultural backgrounds.

CCLI Cohort Program Includes:

  • Comprehensive staff survey
  • Coaching for development/implementation of a year-long strategic initiative
  • Two day in-person workshop
  • Monthly webinars
  • Network of peer museums
  • Resources and tools
  • Unique staff development opportunity
  • Cross-departmental team engagement

IMLSThis project was made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services grants MP-00-12-0021 and MG-10-17-0040-17.
