Museum Hue is organizing a scheduled conversation at THE LONG TABLE at The Rubin Museum. There’s never been a more essential time to empower each other to create positive change in our lives and in the power structures that build our world. Below are some logistics about your scheduled conversation, as well as a brief marketing kit for you to use to promote this to your Community and Followers.
The current spotlight on pay and racial equity in the museum field is a rare and recent occurrence. The publishing of a major anonymous salary-reporting spreadsheet and the recent call from the Association of Art Museum Directors to eliminate unpaid internships, have advanced an industry-wide conversation about the glass ceiling that disproportionately affects women and people of color. As some employees across the field have begun taking matters into their own hands by electing to join unions and enforce workers’ rights, others are wondering how they can best empower themselves and each other to bring the topic to the forefront at their home institutions. Together with Museum Hue, an organization focused on racial equity in the arts, this Long Table discussion encourages museum professionals to join us to discuss experiences, thoughts, and strategies in pushing forward the conversation about pay and racial equity in museums.
