The Gender Equity in Museums Movement (GEMM) is a coalition of individuals and organizations committed to raising awareness, affecting change, and championing transparency about gender equity in the museum workplace.
Work to End Sexual Harassment in the Museum Workplace: The Pledge
The Gender Equity in Museums Movement recently launched a platform for individuals and representatives from the museum field to be progressive agents of change by pledging to take an active role to end sexual harassment in the museum workplace.
The pledge includes a commitment to practice zero tolerance for discrimination, harassment, and sexual violence, refrain from sexist and disrespectful language, act as an educational ambassador on issues surrounding sexism and consent in the museum field. The pledge is a resource for the museum world to identify individuals committed to ending sexual harassment in the workplace.
GEMM believes it is important to sign the pledge because “We believe everyone on the gender spectrum is a strong and valuable resource for museums and heritage institutions; we all need to play our role in making society a better place, to no longer play the quiet bystander.”
