Amplifying Diverse Voices: Continuing Education Speaker Series in DEI

We are proud to present a speaker series on diversity, equity and inclusivity (DEI) in order to teach how diverse identities and voices affect treatment and research in speech-language pathology (SLP), and to increase minority representation within the field. Our DEI speaker series provides (required) continuing education credits (CEs) to current SLPs who may attend for a registration fee. We aim to provide cutting-edge content related to DEI in clinical contexts, with expert speakers who also provide lived experience to further support their content.

The series will be offered at 5:30pm-7:30pm (mountain time) synchronously on Tuesdays in Spring 2024. Links forthcoming for registrants. Attendees must attend all 5 speakers’ workshops and participate in engagement activities to attain the 1.0 CE offered.

Support for this series is provided by SLHOS, the UM College of Health, and the UM Provost Office.


Cost: $95.00

Dates:  January 23, February 13, March 5, March 26, and April 30, 2024
