Challenging perceptions in heritage: women in non-traditional roles (8 November, 2018)

At HLF, we’re committed to ensuring that our heritage is inclusive and accessible, including creating a more diverse workforce. For November's live chat, we’ll be focusing on gender, challenging perceptions of heritage and how we can support and promote women in non-traditional roles.

Join us on Thursday 8 November from 12.30-1.30pm when we'll be joined by special guests Jess Eyre (Heritage Building Trainee, Chiltern Open Air Museum), Nell Hellier (Senior Built Heritage Officer, Carmarthenshire County Council), Ruth Runacus (Apprenticeship Co-ordinator, Canal & River Trust), Paula Baron (Masonry Apprentice, Canal & River Trust) and Danielle Edmunds (Cultural Ambition Trainee, Big Pit National Coal Museum).

Hear first-hand from our panel as they share their various experiences of starting new careers in non-traditional roles in the heritage sector and the successes and challenges they have experienced in recruiting and supporting a more gender-diverse workforce.

So, if you would like to know more about creating welcoming workplaces, developing inclusive recruitment strategies or you're interested in a career in the heritage sector, please join us here on 8 November to hear from our panel, and ask us any questions you might have.
