In the context of growing uncertainty and anxiety surrounding trans inclusion, the University of Leicester’s Research Centre for Museums and Galleries (RCMG) – working with a team of legal scholars and experts in inclusion, equality and ethics – has developed a comprehensive guidance (Trans-Inclusive Culture: Guidance on advancing trans inclusion for museums, galleries, archives and heritage organisations) to bring clarity, common sense, pragmatism and ethics to a debate that is too often distorted by misinformed, highly charged and polarised viewpoints.

The NEMO Webinar, led by members of the University of Leicester’s RCMG team, introduces the guidance, explains how it can be used and answers any questions from attendees. The guidance is intended primarily for anyone working with or in museums, galleries, archives and heritage.

Although developed within the UK legal context, at the heart of the guidance is a comprehensive ethical framework that can be used and adapted by cultural organisations across the international cultural landscape and has received the backing of a number of international museum agencies.  It explains how organisations can:

  • Develop trans-inclusive displays, events and public programming
  • Generate a trans-inclusive organisational culture
  • Provide a warm welcome to (and ensure the safety of) trans visitors
  • Work with trans communities to advance trans inclusion

Webinar attendees are encouraged to bring to the session any queries or challenges relating to trans inclusion that they are currently working on.

Participation in the NEMO Webinar  is free of charge, but registration is mandatory. The webinar is limited to 200 participants on a first come, first serve basis.
