Seminar: Utilizing Student Leadership to Support Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in CSD Disciplines
November 20, 3:00-4:00 p.m., EST.
CC, Room 204AB
Student leaders have a unique opportunity to influence the future of the communication sciences and disorders (CSD) field and ensure that tomorrow’s clinicians demonstrate cultural competence, responsiveness, and humility in their professional practice. This session focuses on developing leadership skills related to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) as students and future clinicians in CSD.
National NSSLHA's Executive Council [student leaders] and their National Advisor will guide attendees through critical thinking exercises to develop a framework for inclusive leadership. You'll explore resources and opportunities to better serve culturally and linguistically diverse populations as students. And you'll be empowered to support DEI initiatives at the organizational and institutional levels and leave a lasting impact on our professions.
Virtual Grad School Fair/PhD Center
While there will be no in-person Grad School Fair/PhD Center at the ASHA Convention this year, we hope you'll join us at our Virtual Grad School Fair/PhD Center!
This virtual event is co-hosted by National NSSLHA and ASHA.
