International Women's Day 2018 #IWD2018

Today MGA is recognising and celebrating the role of women in our sector. We believe museums are powerful agents of change in the community and have an important role to play in championing equality and providing a safe place for women to work and visit.

MGA endorses the statements, policy positions and affirmative actions of our colleagues at National Association for the Visual Arts, and the National Museum of Australia, among many institutions pressing for progress in gender equality and recognition.

Women's Policy

Our Women's Policy (2000) has been under review for the past 12 months and is nearly ready to be re-released.
