In the rapidly changing field of visual resources, explaining your responsibilities and advocating for your position with administration can be increasingly complex. In this workshop, we will explore the different duties and roles VR professionals perform and provide examples of the ways your VR colleagues explain the value of their work to both peers and superiors. This workshop will provide a broad range of experiences, including: a panel of professionals from academia, archives, and museums featuring Sarah Gillis of the Worcester Art Museum, Lesley Chapman of Colgate University, Chris Strasbaugh of The Ohio State University, and Justine Tobiasz of The Chicago Tribune; individual activities to help you articulate the value of your position and develop your own elevator speech; and tips for ways to increase the visibility of your position to your community. Participants will leave this workshop with a greater understanding of the tasks other VR professionals engage in and a concrete starting point for how best to explain your personal responsibilities and make a strong case to administration for the value of your position.
