Committee Updates: March 2024

Published in the March 2024 issue of the ISHA Voice.

  • ISHA’s Leadership Development Program held its graduation for the cohort members this month.  The virtual graduation was attended by Dr. Tena McNamara, ASHA President, and Vicki Deals-Williams, ASHA CEO. 
  • The Multicultural Issues Committee (MIC) enjoyed connecting with ISHA members during the convention and discussing new ideas. To follow up with our discussion, MIC invites you to share what topics related to cultural and linguistic diversity and responsivity you would like addressed in future articles, posts, and professional development activities.  Please feel free to indicate your topics of interest here.  
  • ISHA’s Multicultural Issues Committee is also launching a new initiative – hosting quarterly Multilingual Munch and Mentor virtual meetings for ISHA members who want to discuss questions and brainstorm possible solutions to support efforts to better serve clients from various cultural and linguistic backgrounds. We will aim to alternate between noon hour and early evening meetings.  Join us for our first Multilingual Munch and Mentor meeting:
    • Date: Wednesday, April 17th
    • Time: 12:00pm
    • Hosts: Brenda Gorman and Sharon Rzyski
    • Where: Zoom
