This session challenges the CAA community to critically examine its composition and lack of diversity - while the faces may have changed this community remains largely homogenous. Like the rest of archaeology, we fail to represent the communities we work, additionally women are also very under-represented, especially at senior level. We welcome papers from under-represented groups, individuals and discussants, to consider the consequences of the apparently homogeneous community on the questions we ask, the voices we hear and what we are missing. How does this lack of representation affect what we do in digital archaeology, our research fields, tools, methods, ambitions and our data? Does the diversity issue lead to problems such as all- male panels and difficulty in career progression? How can we address these challenges, support the CAA community to diversify, and how can members of underrepresented groups better support each other? As session organisers we realise that these can be difficult subjects to discuss, and we would like to encourage a safe environment where people can share and listen.
