“It is largely accepted that Museums across the UK are lagging behind other cultural sector organisations when it comes to workforce diversity, with Disabled people and those from ethnically diverse backgrounds most underrepresented. This inequality within Museums is further reflected in terms of their collections and displays, with exhibitions rarely being curated by disabled people, or those from ethnically diverse and LGBTQI+ backgrounds who would bring their own authentic understandings. However, over the last year the Covid-19 Pandemic has shown us things do not need to remain the same and there is an opportunity for great change.
But will this change be for the good or will it further disadvantage people? Championing equality, and inclusion is a step towards challenging current underrepresentation and bringing about positive change, but is this radical enough to create a culture shift and change mindsets? This session looks at whether we need to consider an equity focussed approach instead.”
