We are delighted to share the programme for our next Sector Forum.

We will examine the benefit of peer-to-peer mentoring and specialist disability workplace networks, and how this enables disabled colleagues to pursue their career goals.

The Curating for Change programme tackles the serious underrepresentation of D/deaf, disabled and neurodivergent people within our museums. In hosting 8 Curatorial Fellowships for 18 months and 7 40-day 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 D/deaf, disabled and neurodivergent people within their workforce.

Building on the success of our first sector forum and action plan for equitable recruitment in the museums sector; “We Are Not All the Same”, this, the second in a 2-part forum, focuses on retaining disabled talent within the museum workforce.
