Activating Diversity and Inclusion: A Blueprint for Museum Educators as Allies and Change Makers
Ng, Wendy; Ware, Syrus Marcus; Greenberg, Alyssa
Journal of Museum Education, v42 n2 p142-154 2017
Within the museum field's recent emphasis on diversity and inclusion to create meaningful experiences for "all" visitors, there remain problematic power dynamics that maintain white supremacy and re-inscribe disparities in privilege among museum workers and visitors. We introduce guiding principles of allyship and practical strategies for enacting equitable relationships with visitors and staff across lines of social difference, providing a blueprint for a rigorous approach to how museum educators can activate diversity and inclusion to create social change.
