Smithsonian employee advocacy groups provide recruitment and programming assistance and are instrumental in the development of the Smithsonian’s cultural awareness programming. Groups may meet regularly or maintain contact by other means.
Professional interest groups and committees - Professional interest groups provide the opportunity to meet with colleagues from around the Smithsonian campus, exchange information and ideas, make recommendations and develop collaborative projects. There are organizations for most professional groups (scientists, scholars, educators, training, administrators etc.) as well as committees to guide special projects that have Institution wide impact (collections systems, digitization etc.)
