The History Leadership Institute Seminar is the best professional development opportunity for mid-career professionals at history organizations of all types and sizes. Since 1959, the HLI Seminar has provided people at all management levels the tools, ideas, and connections to enhance their ability to lead institutions and the field.

Over four weeks—week 1 online, weeks 2 and 3 in-person in Indianapolis, Indiana, and week 4 online—a cohort of about twenty Associates dives deep into a broad range of current and future national issues facing the history and museum field, including purpose, relevance, impact, decolonization, community engagement, equity and access, facilitating change, and much, much more. Through workshops, discussions, activities, and field studies facilitated by dozens of nationally-recognized experts working on the field’s leading edge, Associates tackle the most pressing challenges confronting history institutions and develop strategies for addressing them. The History Leadership Institute challenges history professionals to ask not “Are we doing things right?” but rather to ask “Are we doing the right things?”

To ensure that the seminar experience is as safe as possible, proof of full COVID-19 vaccination will be required and verified prior to entrance. Vaccination is the most effective way to protect yourself and fellow attendees. Requirements regarding COVID-19 testing and face masks during the seminar will be decided later.
