This month, the LGBTQ+ CSDSA launched its mentorship program, to connect LGBTQ+ students and clinicians. Mentorship is a key component of academic and professional success, but many students lack access to mentors who are knowledgeable about the LGBTQ+ professional experience.
Developed and coordinated by Mentorship Student Chair Lindsay Stefferson, the mentorship program aims to close this gap by connecting mentors and mentees with similar interests across speech-language pathology, audiology, and research careers.
We are currently accepting interested mentors and mentees. We are also seeking a Faculty Mentorship Chair to assist in coordination of the program. Contact us for details.
