Welcome to the Movement

The GEMM Steering Committee welcomes you! 

Join us as we come together to affect change around gender equity in the museum workplace. By connecting members to research and resources that raise awareness and promote transparency, GEMM seeks to influence museum policies and practices. Together we can move these important issues forward and eliminate gender discrimination. 


Becoming part of the GEMM movement is as simple
as engaging with us on Facebook or Twitter.

GEMM Circles

You are invited to join us for a GEMM Circle on March 17, 2022 (11 PT/ 12 MT/ 1CT/ 2 ET). The COVID-19 pandemic has not only highlighted systemic inequities in the workplace but created new issues often drawn on gender lines. What role do unions--and the fight to create them--play in raising awareness of these problems and working towards gender equity? All are welcome to join.

RSVP for the March GEMM Circle Here.

Work to End Sexual Harassment in the Museum Workplace: The Pledge

The Gender Equity in Museums Movement 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. 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.” ​
