As stated in their background section, the Equality and Diversity Group "provides a direct response to the labour market survey data for archaeology from the last two decades, which demonstrates that the workforce in British archaeology is predominantly white, able-bodied and has notably less women over the age of 40, translating to a lack of women in senior roles. None of these trends correspond with national statistics, in turn suggesting a fundamental need for the profession to address these inequalities. Therefore the group’s core function will be to work with and support CIfA individual members and Registered Organisations to challenge the lack of equality and diversity in the profession" (
