SAA Statement on Diversity (2006)

Apr 26, 2006

SAA believes that the study and preservation of the archaeological record can enrich our appreciation for diverse communities, foster respect for difference, and encourage the celebration of individual and collective achievement. SAA is committed to promoting diversity in our membership, in our practice, and in the audiences we seek to reach through the dissemination of our research. Moreover, SAA aims to cultivate an inclusive environment that promotes understanding and values diversity in ethnic origin, national origin, gender, race, age, economic status, lifestyle, physical and/or cognitive abilities, religious beliefs, sexual orientation, work background, family structure, and other perceived differences.
