Brunel Museum director Katherine McAlpine has been shortlisted for an award thanks to her focus on fair pay and tackling climate change.
Against a backdrop of rising costs, McAlpine committed the Rotherhithe museum to becoming and remaining a Living Wage employer.
She has also put climate change at the forefront of the museum’s agenda, launching a sustainability strategy in 2021.
Richard Davies, Chair of Trustees at the Brunel Museum, said: “I’m delighted that Katherine has been shortlisted for this award. It is a great reflection on the considerable effort that Katherine has made, and the work achieved over the last few years at the Brunel Museum.”
The honour is called the Radical Changemaker Award and is part of the Museums Change Lives Awards.
The scheme recognises and celebrates outstanding practices by UK museums in delivering social impact.
The winner will be announced at the Museums Association conference which takes place from Tuesday, November 7, until Thursday, November 9.
