What does being an equitable and inclusive museum mean for organisations?

This short introductory session discusses the approaches and mindset that can help museums on their Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) journey.

Session aims:

  • Increase understanding of what Equity, Diversity and Inclusion means for museum practice
  • Raise awareness of the impact of racist and exclusionary practices
  • Explore and reflect on the skills and competencies that support an organisation to continue to develop and embed EDI practices into its operations

This event is aimed at museum Trustees, managers and staff who wish to better understanding what is needed to develop an equitable and inclusive organisation.
