SLP Private Practice in Color Presents: Cultural Humility Part 1-Historical Context
Time & Location
About the Event
SLP Private Practice in Color previously hosted the "Call to Action" Virtual Town Hall Meeting, a panel discussion lead by diverse Speech-Language Pathologists that addressed the racial disparities within the field and the Black communities we service. In order to continue the push for equity, we have developed this 5-Part Webinar Series that allows for an in-depth discussion into the historical basis of racial disparities that adversely impact the Black community and presents solutions to closing those gaps. Each part will be lead by an expert panelist who addresses: the historical background/context of racism, systematic racism in the Health Field, systematic racism in Education, Cultural Intersectionality, and the plan for equity respectively.
