Diversifying participation in the historic environment workforce
This report is the first of its kind: there is no previous research examining the ethnic diversity of the historic environment workforce. For the purposes of the project the ‘historic environment workforce’ was defined as everybody (including volunteers) working for organisations whose core activities involve the management, understanding, conservation, development, and enhancement of historic places and material.
This project was originally designed as a scoping survey that would identify all existing data and research pertaining to ethnic diversity in the sector. This report pulls together all known analysis and available data on the subject into one holistic analysis that examines all parts of the sector (including its educational, voluntary and professional elements).
