Here to champion and promote equality and diversity in the heritage industry
Proposed Equality and Diversity Group Actions – Now
Research current attitudes towards equality and diversity
Survey underlying disability issues in archaeology as a cause of disability, e.g. RSI, back, joint and other injuries, dust inhalation, etc.
Diversify archaeology – integrate with bigger cultural issues so that archaeology isn’t about ‘British’ tradition alone
Explain equality and diversity legislation in a user-friendly manner – if people know about legislation they are more empowered to act upon it, and if organisations know about legislation they can put into place more robust policies
Pressure CIfA to improve Registered Organisation processes.
Ask to see equality and diversity evidence automatically as part of Registered Organisation inspections
Registered Organisation inspectors to talk to staff away from managers in order to get a real picture of the experience of life in an Registered Organisation
Promote ethics both inside and outside the industry.
