In this three-part webcast series, leadership experts and museum directors will engage in a frank conversation supported by leadership case studies about the skills needed to be an adaptive leader at any level in today’s museums. 

We will explore what it means to be a leader in a museum that fosters growth and learning; how to better communicate in distinct, relevant and consistent ways; and how creating a strategic career plan plays an important role in leading a rich professional life and building or supporting a healthy organization.

The Balboa Park Cultural Partnership serves as the collaborative body and collective voice for 28 arts, science, and cultural institutions in Balboa Park. Together we achieve greater effectiveness, innovation, and excellence and contribute to the vitality and sustainability of Balboa Park. Our collective 500 trustees, 7,000 volunteers, and 3,500 staff serve more than 6.2 million visitors annually.
