What is Racism – A Workshop for Aotearoa’s Speech-language Therapy Profession 

Auckland | 17 August 2022, 9.00am – 3.30pm

NZSTA supports this full-day event, which aims to support SLTs’ critical thinking about racism and provide a safe space for a facilitated kōrero and wananga.

Presenter: Dr Heather Came, a seventh-generation Pākehā New Zealander, has worked for nearly 25 years in health promotion and public health and has a long involvement in social justice activism.

Heather is a founding member of STIR: Stop Institutional Racism, a fellow of the Health Promotion Forum, and an active member of Tāmaki Tiriti Workers.  She is a senior lecturer and head of teaching and learning at the School of Public Health and Psychosocial Studies at the Auckland University of Technology in New Zealand.

Our strong preference is to have you attend in person.  However, if you can not attend in person but would like to be involved, you can contact Tracy Karanui-Golf at

Morning (9.00 am – 12. 30 am):  Dr Came will discuss racism.

Afternoon (1.30 – 3.30 pm): SLTs who attend in person can participate in wānanga.  There may be an opportunity to have a small group facilitated kōrero focused on SLT in specific areas such as health, education, service provision, higher education and justice.

To honour the kōrero, this session is not available to online participants.

This event is complimentary with a koha invitation.  The koha will go to  STIR: Stop Institutional Racism.
