The Equity of Recruitment - A "Fair" Process?
A Curating for Change Sector Forum
About this forum
Join us at this free online sector forum, which aims to equip delegates with tools on how to deliver an inclusive recruitment practice for D/deaf, disabled and neurodivergent applicants.
Curating for Change tackles the serious under-representation of D/deaf, disabled and neurodivergent people within our museums. With the support of The National Lottery Heritage Fund and Art Fund we have appointed 8 Curatorial Fellowships and 7 Traineeships in 20 partner museums across the country.
Our aim is to demonstrate that any museum, whatever its size, type or location can open-up access to all within their workforce.
This sector forum will explore the lessons learnt from the recruitment phase of the programme. We will bring together, lead advocates for inclusive recruitment practices in the museum sector, CfC partner museums who have enacted change within their organisations and our Fellows and Trainees with that lived experience. Through a mixture of presentations, panel discussions and reflection this event will offer practical approaches to inclusive and equitable recruitment. Ideas and experiences explored at this forum will contribute to guidance we are writing for the sector, which will be launched early November 2022.
We encourage those leading on recruitment in human resources teams, senior leadership and line managers designing roles, and hosting interview panels within museums to attend this free forum.
