At the Fitzwilliam Museum, we pledge to champion equity, diversity, inclusion, anti-racism and accessibility:
We are committed to fostering an environment that welcomes visitors and staff from all backgrounds, values lived experience, and where everyone feels safe and respected.
We will actively promote dialogue, research and exchange that stimulates diverse perspectives and participation, and that is accessible for all.
We will proactively identify and address inequalities, challenge discriminatory practice and embed principles of anti-racism, wherever they appear across our organisation, underpinning this effort with robust policies, procedures, strategies and action plans.
We will ensure staff at all levels of the organisation have access to meaningful and ongoing education, training and learning to positively influence our practice, to continuously shape our organisational culture, and to strengthen our EDI commitments, so that together we can identify and address systemic barriers.
We seek to be actively anti-racist in action - not just in words.
We pledge that our exhibitions and displays, collections and new acquisitions, collaborations, policies, learning initiatives, projects and research programmes, partnerships, stakeholder engagement, and communications will reflect and promote equity, diversity, inclusivity, anti-racist practice and ensure access for all.
We pledge to evolve and improve as an organisation, in our EDI policies, strategies and practice, by ensuring our visitors, staff, volunteers, communities, partners and Syndicate members can all help shape our principles of equity, diversity, and inclusion.
