We are committed to ensuring that Tate galleries are safe, inclusive and respectful places. We will take immediate action when this is not supported by those visiting our sites.
Tate is committed to creating an inclusive work environment where all employees, contractors, volunteers and visitors are treated in a respectful manner.
We aim to provide a safe and non-threatening workplace free from abusive, threatening or violent behaviour.
We take instances of discrimination or harassment extremely seriously. We will not tolerate harassment or discrimination on the grounds of age, disability, sex, gender identity or gender expression, ethnicity or race, religion or belief, or sexual orientation.
Harassment is any behaviour that is unwelcome or offensive to the individual receiving it. It could include any of the following, which is provided as an indicative list:
• Threats or other aggressive behaviour, including swearing or verbal abuse, personal comments or insults, racist, homophobic, biphobic, transphobic, xenophobic or sexist remarks or behaviour and bullying or intimidation
• Unwanted touching/physical contact
• Abusive telephone calls, letters, notes, emails
• Persistent or vexatious enquiries or contacts via social media
Anyone exhibiting these behaviours will be asked to stop, or to leave, or if necessary we will call the Police.
Tate takes security very seriously.
We undertake a range of measures including random bag checks and plain clothed security officers to protect our visitors, staff, collections and properties.
We do not discuss the details of our security arrangements.
