Difficult Conversations in the Voice and Speech Classroom:

Addressing Microaggressions Affinity Space

Saturday December 3rd, 2022 @ 2pm PST, 5pm EST, 10pm GMT, and Sunday December 4th, 2022 @ 9am AEDT

Join EduCore and the EDIA+ Committee for an open discussion around difficult conversations in the voice and speech classroom. If you have found yourself in situations where conflict or harm have come up with students and/or colleagues and you didn’t know how to best address it, this event will serve as an affinity space to share stories and questions. We will explore how to navigate discussions around microaggressions, culturally sensitive situations, etc. in the voice/speech classroom and academic institution in general with specificity and care.  

This event will also serve as a springboard for an upcoming workshop led by Michelle Lopez-Rios, Associate Professor of Voice & Speech at The Theatre School at DePaul University, who will further discuss tools for addressing microaggressions in the Voice and Speech Classroom. Date and time for this event will be announced soon.

We hope to see you there.
