This presentation delves into the critical issue of addressing micro and macroaggressions, prejudice, and discrimination within the fields of audiology and speech-language pathology. As professionals committed to improving communication and quality of life, it is essential for our clients, their families, our co-workers, and our students to recognize and mitigate the harm caused by these pervasive forms of bias. Attendees will gain insights into identifying subtle forms of discrimination, navigating difficult conversations, and implementing strategies to create inclusive and supportive environments for clients and colleagues alike. Through mindfulness of our own shifting roles in interpersonal interactions, we can create a profession that recognizes diversity as opportunity and dismantles the barriers built by intentional and unintentional acts of prejudice and discrimination.
