Rosie Baines
Lab 4 Participant

Hello, my name is Rosie and I have spent the last 7 years working exclusively in museums – most recently the Imperial War Museum looking after their press. NEON is the first place I have worked which is not a museum, which is very new and exciting. I have become more aware and bothered by the lack of diversity in our museums in the workforce and campaigns that we run. I was also aware growing up that there was no-one who looked like me visibly in the media talking about the big issues which affect this country. I have wanted for a long time to change things but didn’t know how. With NEON now I’m working on the Spokesperson Network specifically looking at increasing diversity in the media by recruiting and training people from different backgrounds to talk to press which is amazing. But I’d like to learn what more I can do to be changing things now.
