Race in Optometry: Headwinds – Part VI: Exploring Emerging Barriers to Success



Zoom - SUNY College of Optometry

Program Description:

Over the last three years, SUNY College of Optometry’s Office of Continuing Professional Education has hosted a series of webinars to stimulate a national conversation on race and equity within the profession of optometry. This has served as a measure of accountability and reflection in our journey to becoming a more equitable profession. This year’s webinar comes at a time when there has been significant anti-DEI legislation at the state level and challenges to racially conscious admissions at the level of the US Supreme Court. Our sixth “Race in Optometry” discussion will address the challenges, discuss the impact they have on our DEI initiatives and outline tools we can use to advance equity, diversity, and inclusion in the face of these headwinds.

Panel Members to Be Announced Shortly!
