We want to see workplaces and conditions designed to meet the needs of women (including trans) and non binary people.
- Equal pay and no gender pay gap
- Flexibility, with caring responsibilities supported for all staff and all dependents
- Safe spaces free of sexism
As intersectional feminists we know that to create long lasting change, we need to improve conditions for everyone in the sector. At every level.
Fair Museum Jobs are doing a great job of championing diversity in hiring. We recommend you look at their website for articles on CVS, salaries and post grad qualifications.
