“Good Trouble” & Championing Equity

Thursday, August 20th at 1 PM ET

The intent behind this Aphasia Access Town Hall is to take stock of where we are amid an unprecedented reckoning of racial inequity, writ large in our society and in speech-language pathology. We want to learn from this inflection point by stimulating deep reflection and discussion and being more intentional champions of equity and inclusion by working to reimagine our organizations, programs, and clinics.

The panel includes:

Dr. Hia Datta, Associate Professor
Molloy College

Vicki Deal Williams, Chief Staff Officer for Multicultural Affairs
ASHA

Dr. Gloriajean Wallace, Professor and Program Director
Xavier University

Dr. Maria Munoz, Professor
University of Redlands

Moderated by:

Dr. Nidhi Mahendra, Chair, Department of Communicative Disorders & Sciences
San Jose State University
