Representation matters. Seeing people like yourself within your profession, in leadership roles, and succeeding in their work can make a huge impact on the careers of new and emerging professionals. In today’s episode I talk about the lack of diversity within public history, archives, and the heritage field more broadly. I also provide examples of ways to make space for marginalized folks within the public history profession.
I would love to hear how other people challenge the status quo within their field or workplace, leave a comment or send me a message on Twitter.
