SCA’s committee, Women in California Archaeology (WCA), was formed in Spring 2012 to provide a venue for discussion related to women archaeologists in California. The WCA will work to provide support and mentorship to women practicing archaeology in the state through individual and/or group interactions. The WCA has a core committee and members. Any member of the SCA can become a member of the WCA, including men. WCA is about supporting women in the profession. The Core Committee includes women from different venues; academic institutions, CRM firms, federal and state agencies, Native American groups, and museums.
