Registration is closed for this event
Come to our regular digital networking event. These are very informal sessions focused on different topics, giving you the opportunity to share ideas, learn from others and make new contacts.



Join us for an evening chat, from 18:00 until 18:45. Expand your social network from the comfort of your own home or wherever you are currently located, and perhaps chat with some people on Zoom other than your daily contacts! We will set up a series of break-out rooms for people to join and go from there.

CIfA staff will also be joining in on the conversations, so feel free to say hi! We'd also love to get your feedback on these sessions and any ideas you have for topics or ways to improve the process, so let us know and we will see what we can do! This will be completely free with up to 100 spaces available.


  • Meet members of Advisory Council – as elected and nominated representatives of the wider membership, Advisory Council (AC) offers advice to CIfA’s Board of Directors and staff on a whole range of CIfA’s work. However, we know its often difficult to communicate what AC does and why its important to be involved. Come along and meet some members of AC to hear more and to share your thoughts on how we can improve communication channels.
  • Neurodiversity network - for this session we would like to chat about our reactions to an awkward work situations we may find ourselves in, as a result of our neurodiversity. For example, when we have mispronounced a word or approached a task differently. We are keen to explore how do we respond to those situations? How can we highlight in a positive way why we made that ‘mistake’? Can we normalise that ‘mistake’ and just be a bit more honest with how our brains take different approaches to instances like this

Following the evening chat, we'll be continuing with a career shift discussion from 7pm:

  • Career shift discussion and guidance (19:00 - 19:45)
    Join us following our Evening chat to meet with others who have either have changed careers, or are currently in the process of a career shift, or are returning to archaeology after a break. We’ll also be discuss the creation of resources that may assist in your career transition and if there may be any interest in hosting regular catch ups. For this discussion, you're certainly welcome to join the evening chat or just log into the Zoom session at 7pm for the discussion.
