Comments on social media, such as during the Heritage Chat on Twitter, have highlighted how much people are missing the everyday networking opportunities which have been halted due to lockdown procedures. We know nothing can really beat the cross-organisational networking that happens in the break room, but we are trying to fill that gap.

Join us for a lunchtime chat, from 12:30 until 13:15. 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! Please bear in mind: this is something new we are trying out. If you can think of ways to improve the process, let us know and we will see what we can do! This will be completely free with up to 100 spaces available.


  • Menopause in the workplace
    Menopause (in all its stages) is a normal life event that impacts on many people during their working lives, at different times and in different ways. Everyone is invited to join this informal discussion facilitated by the RESPECT/MWAH menopause group.

  • Informal network for neurodiverse archaeologists
    Come along to our next regular neurodiversity check-in which provides a space for our developing informal network. This also coincides with the next British Dyslexia Association awareness week which is focusing on the theme of invisible dyslexia.
