Collaboration is the foundation to taking our profession to the next level. Join your colleagues for lively moderated round table conversations on pediatrics, (re)habilitation and counseling, amplification, and practice management. Share best practices. Learn what is working (and not working), swap challenges and ideas, and talk through tactical solutions you can put into practice.

Clinical Education Forum

Belonging, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion—Addressing Microaggressions in Clinical Education
Saturday, April 2, 8:00-11:00 am

Supporting the efforts of the audiology profession to effect widespread diversity, the forum will address the challenges and impact of microaggressions in clinical education.

Alaa K. Abdelhakiem Mahmoud, PharmD, of the University of Texas El Paso, will discuss microaggressions and how to facilitate inclusion in the clinical environment. The forum will also feature a panel of students, preceptors, and administrators discussing their personal experiences from a range of perspectives, including diversity in the areas of race, linguistics, sexual identity, and disability. The final hour will include facilitated small- and large-group discussions about strategies to address microaggressions.

The session is organized by the Academy’s Academic Programs Committee in collaboration with the Council of Academic Programs in Communication Science Disorders.
