Ready, Set, Listen!

inequity_cynthiagoodmojabThe brand new GOLD Learning Library has launched! And, along with it, my webinar “Ready, Set, Listen! Preparing to Hear the Missing Voices of the Lactation Consultant Profession” is now available on-demand for public viewing.

“Ready, Set Listen!” is the pre-Summit webinar to the 2014 Lactation Summit: Addressing Inequities within the Lactation Consultant Profession that was held on July 27th in Phoenix, Arizona, USA. I was asked to give this talk to help attendees prepare to participate in the Summit by learning how to cope with challenging emotions and thoughts often experienced when we learn about inequity, developing a common language and understanding of systems of privilege and oppression, understanding the ethical rationale for eliminating inequity in access to the lactation consultant profession, recognizing the developmental nature of this work, and learning about ground rules for effectively listening and speaking in conversations about inequity.

The content of this webinar can be applied by any individual or institution working toward seeing, understanding, and eliminating inequitable institutional outcomes in breastfeeding support organizations, whether they attended the Summit or not. The webinar provides .75 E-CERPs and .75 R-CERPs for those seeking or maintaining the IBCLC credential.

Additional webinars will be added later to the GOLD Learning Library, including more of my webinars related to developing cultural competence.
