Diversity Statement

Museums & Galleries of NSW Diversity Statement


At Museums & Galleries of NSW we appreciate the importance of creating an environment in which our Board, volunteers and employees feel valued, included and empowered to bring great ideas and knowledge to the table.

We recognise that each person’s unique experiences, perspectives, and viewpoints across our various programs and activities are critical to creating services that engage with and inspire people throughout NSW. Therefore, our goal is to foster an environment that is an incubator for great ideas, is attractive to the best talent, and that creates a sense of pride across the organisation.

Our diversity and inclusion goals will focus on:

  • Leading and managing inclusively – embracing NSW Aboriginal people, and others representing different cultures, genders, sexual orientations, ages and disability.
  • Creating a work environment that fosters growth and advancement.
  • Engaging with museums, galleries and Aboriginal cultural centres, and their audiences, in a way that reflects and respects their different perspectives and experiences.

Progress towards achieving these goals will be assessed regularly and aligned with the organisation’s values, strategies and program objectives. It is acknowledged that M&G NSW’s reflection of diversity begins with Board membership maintaining gender balance and engagement with contemporary Australian identity, one that also maintains deep sector knowledge of volunteer and professionally run organisations across NSW.
