Help Make Museums More Equitable
In the current landscape of 2023/2024, there are ongoing discussions about diversity, equity, accessibility, and inclusion in the museum field. However, it is crucial to move beyond talking and take tangible actions. One step in the right direction is the disclosure of salary ranges on job postings.

Traditionally, many museum organizations have chosen not to disclose salary information, fearing it may deter potential candidates, hinder negotiations, or cause internal conflicts. Nonetheless, research by Human Resource professionals and organizations suggests that including salary on job postings actually saves time for both employers and candidates and leads to better fits for the organizational culture.

The National Emerging Museum Professionals Network is championing this cause, calling on museums to embrace salary transparency to foster a more equitable workforce. If you come across job postings without salary information during your job search, we encourage you to fill out the form below. We will contact the respective museums and initiate discussions on the importance of salary transparency in the hiring process.

Rest assured that your submission will be completely anonymous, and your identity will not be disclosed during our interactions with the museums.

Please note that, at this time, we can only accept submissions for museums located in the United States. While we acknowledge that this is a global issue within our field, we hope to expand our scope in the future to include international submissions.

Thank you for your understanding and support in creating a more equitable and transparent museum workforce.
