We are delighted to announce that Martina Bagnoli, Executive Director of the Gallerie Estensi, was appointed Chair-Elect of the Europeana Foundation on 14 December 2021. She will formally join the Europeana Foundation Supervisory Board as Chair in February 2022, succeeding Elisabeth Niggemann.
On Europeana Pro today, we launch the ‘Europeana Foundation Business Plan - Towards a digital public space for cultural heritage’. In this post, we look at how we have approached our business planning during these turbulent times.
Europeana's commitment to Diversity and Inclusion translates to many different actions we will take as an organisation and around it. One of them was formalising a Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) cross-team that can structure the work across the Europeana Foundation. But what is a cross-team? How does it fit in the wider structure of the Europeana Foundation, and who is involved?
In 2020, the Europeana Foundation made its belief in diversity explicit in its organisational statement that ‘cultural heritage empowers us to embrace our diversity and flourish’. This post outlines the approach we are taking to make sure we are indeed embracing diversity and implementing practical measures to embed it in our organisation.
