DEI Office Hours Topic Opportunity

Is there a DEI topic that you would like discuss with CSD colleagues and students? The DEI Committee's Office Hours are open for topic and conversation hosting! The purpose of these office hours is to hold space for ISHA members and students wishing to explore and challenge themselves in an informal, supportive conversation space. We welcome co-hosts from other Committees or across ISHA membership, who are interested in co-leading a discussion or providing a mini presentation on a topic to get a conversation started.

To inquire about co-sharing a discussion topic at a DEI office hour, contact DEI Committee Co-Chair Katie Gore at katie@speechIRL.com.
