This episode we welcome Kayt Hawkins to talk to us about the BAJR (British Archaeological Jobs Resource) RESPECT campaign, which tackles sexual harassment in the workplace. Kayt talks about how she came to co-write the RESPECT guide, what the guide is, and how it can help institutions tackle harassment. We reflect on the effectiveness on the guide and look to the future – what still needs to be done to make archaeology a safe workplace – for all?
