Join us online for an engaging discussion with Kristina Durocher, Dawn Estabrooks Salerno, and Mark S. Gold, editors of the new book For Love or Money: Confronting the State of Museum Salaries.
Low and unequal rates of pay have been endemic in the international museum profession for decades. For Love or Money dissects the cold, startling statistics about the shocking worldwide inequality of pay in the profession—and introduces the inspiring initiatives now being taken to resolve the problem once and for all. This authoritative book brings a highly critical focus to bear on both the causes and the resulting effects of pay inequality on staff and institutions. But it also proposes effective strategies to remedy the problem and defines the benefits which fair and equitable pay will achieve.
Kristina Durocher, director, Museum of Art, University of New Hampshire
