8 Percent Summit,

Charlotte, North Carolina, United States Charlotte, North Carolina, United States

  • About the event

    About 8% of Speech-language pathologists and Audiologists in the American Speech-language Hearing Association identify as a “person of color or ethnic/racial minority”. It is 14-15% if counting Hispanic/Latino clinicians.

    This minimal diversity in our profession is significant because we deliver speech therapy and hearing services to very diverse populations who may not feel culturally “seen”.

    The mission of the 8% Summit is to CONNECT a community of speech pathologists and audiologists who are Black, Brown, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) in order to COLLABORATE and CONTRIBUTE to each other and the communication sciences and disorders fields, in a fun engaging way.


    Our Goals

    • ❖  To become a destination for SLPs/Audiologists of color to look forward to attending annually.

    • ❖  To connect a community of Black,Brown, Indigenous, and of color SLPs/Audiologists for personal development and networking.

    • ❖  To contribute to the diversity in our

      field through representation, mentorship, advocacy, and scholarship.
