GEM Conference 2023: Big Impacts from Small Changes: Equality, Diversity & Inclusivity at Wakefield Museums & Castles
In 2022, Wakefield Museums & Castles established a cross-team Equality, Diversity & Inclusivity (EDI) working group, which developed an Action Plan to improve access and inclusion across our service.
Working with colleagues in Wakefield Council and external partners, we have introduced a wide range of measures to make our sites and programming more inclusive, accessible, and welcoming. Accepting that we can’t do everything at once, we’ve committed to making small changes that achieve big impacts for visitors.
We are very grateful to The National Lottery Heritage Fund for their commitment of an award of £249,071 to realise the Working Together project from Autumn 2023.
