Activating Diversity and Inclusion: A Blueprint for Museum Educators as Allies and Changemakers

JME-Reader-Guide-42.2.pdf

In this article, the authors Wendy Ng, Syrus Marcus Ware, and Alyssa Greenberg provide a blueprint for a rigorous approach to how museum educators can activate diversity and inclusion to create social change. The authors critically analyze the problematic power dynamics that maintain white supremacy in museum work, and introduce guiding principles of allyship and practical reflection strategies for enacting equitable relationships with visitors and staff across lines of social difference. This guide is designed to help you develop a critical practice that is conscious and constant, and engage in anti-oppressive museum work internally and externally.
