Inclusion 2025 at OMA Conference 
The values outlined in Ontario’s Museums 2025 indicated the importance of engaging with the diversity of people and groups represented in our communities, and facilitate access to all areas of museum work, including representation on our governing councils and among our staff. As our largest annual event, this conference is an opportunity to continue advancing diversity and inclusion in the Ontario museum sector.

Here are some of the ways the OMA is working towards inclusivity at our upcoming Conference:
  • Plenary Session: Inclusion 2025: Where are We Now?
  • The Knowledge Holder 
  • Concurrent Session: Asking the Right Questions: Real Talk about Championing Inclusion as a Museum Professional
