While internships can help museums achieve their educational missions and develop the next generation of professionals, they also raise questions about diversity, equity, accessibility, and inclusion. To engage in this field-wide conversation, this session considers how the issue of interns plays out in small museums, where resources may be scarce. How do discussions and best practices about ethics translate to on-the-ground practice in small museum environments? And what are the challenges and practical issues surrounding small museum internship programs at this particular moment in time?
