Learning aims

By attending this webinar, delegates will:

  • Hear about the discussion and outcomes of the RCSLT workshop, ‘Towards a diverse profession’, held on 26th June
  • Have an opportunity to reflect on some of the shared experiences about diversity we heard on the day
  • Learn about the next stages of the project and how to get involved

The webinar will be of interest to you if:

  • You want to understand the breadth of social, cultural and diversity issues that contribute to why speech and language therapy is little known as a profession among young people
  • You want to see a change in the diversity of the profession and understand why it  does not reflect the diversity of populations it serves 
  • You want to be involved in work that seeks to address those issues

Register your place

Participants have the opportunity to submit questions on this topic to our speakers before and during the webinar.
