Established by the 2021 Cal State LA NSSLHA Board, the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) liaisons represent the vision of promoting cultural and linguistic competence and humility in the department, while addressing fundamental issues that may sit in silence in the field of speech-language pathology and audiology. We are dedicated to advocate, celebrate, and amplify the voices of our culturally and linguistically diverse peers and future clients. We are committed to bring awareness and support the Cal State LA COMD community and initiate change for future clinicians. Compassion drives our dedication to help others in this field, so let’s strive to use this same compassion as we respect and empower the skills and abilities of our underrepresented peers.
DEI is happy to announce that "Safe Space Convos" will begin this Thursday, February 18th, and will continue throughout the semester every other Thursday. "Safe Space Convos" is an inclusive space for students who identify as a minority (or underrepresented person) to share personal experiences, insights, and strategies to navigate the classroom and beyond in the field of COMD.
