Instructional Level: Fundamental

Program Focus: Knowledge

Learning Outcomes: Upon completion, each participant in the eAudiology Web Seminar will be able to:

1. Explain microaggressions and its impact on Black students and audiologists 
2. Identify ways you can be more sensitive in your interactions with Black students and audiologists
3. Recognize challenges faced by Black audiology students and audiologists in order to provide a more supportive and inclusive teaching and working environment 

Description: Based on a recent census performed by the Student Academy of Audiology in 2020, Black audiologists comprise approximately 3.5% of the profession. Similarly, Black students in audiology are approximately 2.9%. As such the experience for Black students and professionals can at times feel isolating especially when dealing with power dynamics, cultural differences, and feeling connected to your patients and colleagues. This panel discussion aims to have attendees listen to the experiences of Black audiologists and students with a goal of attendees having a better understanding of how to create an inclusive teaching and working environment.
