The University of Arizona's Department of Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences recently hosted the National Conversation on Anti-Racism in Communication Sciences and Disorders on October 27, 2020. The purpose of the event was to facilitate a discussion on the importance of anti-racism practices in speech-language pathology and audiology programs across the country. The event created a forum for an exchange of ideas, strategies, tools, and resources for promoting anti-racism in departmental and curricular activities. Thirty-five multicultural/multilingual program representatives from institutions including Arizona State University, Florida International University, Florida State University, Indiana University, Marquette University, New Mexico State University, University of Minnesota, University of Texas at Austin, and University of California-Irvine attended the event.
