In today’s complex world, few organizations can tackle diversity alone. Denver Botanic Gardens has cultivated successful relationships and collaborations by joining forces with unconventional partners, Museo de las Americas and the Denver Broncos, to advocate for change through inclusive practices and programming. Collaborations create community and they allow organizations to combine ideas, funds, and/or resources to tackle the more complex issues facing the people that they serve. Learn how art and culture were created, reinforced, and shared through creative approaches. Participants will learn different types of unconventional approaches to addressing diversity and inclusion, and become better at cultivating productive and mutually beneficial relationships with other organizations.


This session is approved for 1 CFRE credit hour.
