The Business Case for Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI)

Making your museum inclusive and diverse is good for business.

This session gives an introductory overview of the concepts of Equity, Equality, Diversity and Inclusion within and beyond the Equality Act 2010; uses case studies to discuss the impact of lack of diversity to businesses and the economy and explores the national picture of diversity in the museum sector.

The session draws on research, financial and statistical information to demonstrate the importance of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion to the success and sustainability of museum services as community centred cultural businesses.

There will be opportunities for participants to discuss and reflect on the information presented.

This will be an online session over Zoom, led by Isilda Almeida, an Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Consultant, with over 20 years’ experience in heritage audience engagement.

The session is open to staff, volunteers, trustees and consultants working in museums in the south east, but will particularly suit those in small to medium-sized museums that are just starting to consider how to embed Equity, Diversity and Inclusion more fully into their organisation

Please note: this event is being run by South East Museum Development. By signing up to the training you agree to adhere to our terms and conditions, including completing the post session evaluation.
