This chapter reflects on the partnership between Gendered Intelligence and the Science Museum and highlights the importance of gender diversity in collaborative projects. It discusses how co-produced research impacts both organisations and conversations through the ways in which museums posit particular values and ‘norms’ around gender identity. The chapter also outlines the ‘Hacking In’ project and the impact it had on the partners involved, and reflects on the potential within collaborative projects to redress and acknowledge the power imbalances that exist within the narratives of cultural institutions. It offers a study about empowerment and the social responsibility to include, listen to, and work with those whose histories, stories, and identities have been marginalised, excluded, or communicated with little, if any, involvement from those communities.
