Our Senior Birth to Three Specialist, Kim Hamren and Educational Director Maura Berndsen will present Improving Equity in Services at the Washington Speech Language Hearing Association Convention on October 13. Learn more about this event at the WSLHA website.
About the presentation: There are stark disparities between families of color and white families accessing services and achieving great outcomes. We work to change this. Kim will describe our equity journey, reflect on organizational practices and demonstrate ways in which we are evolving our culture to improve access and outcomes for all families. Participants will develop action steps to improve equity in their organizations.
