DtH 21: Gender Bias in Communication Sciences and Disorders
The field of Communication Sciences and Disorders (CSD) faces a critical shortage of the faculty essential to train the future workforce of Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists. Despite a predominance of women in the field, men receive doctoral degrees, academic leadership positions, and ASHA awards at disproportionately higher rates than women. In this episode of Down the Hatch, Drs. Ianessa Humbert and Nicole Rogus-Pulia, authors of a recently accepted paper on this topic, explore how implicit gender bias may impact female advancement in CSD. The paper is accepted for publication in the American Journal of Speech-Language Pathology (AJSLP).
