Abstract:

Individuals and institutions within and outside of the lactation consultant profession are increasingly aware of inequity in access to becoming an IBCLC. ILCA, IBLCE, and LEAARC are co-sponsoring the 2014 Lactation Summit to begin addressing inequities within the lactation profession. “Ready, Set, Listen! Preparing to Hear the Missing Voices of the Lactation Consultant Profession” is a pre-Summit webinar that provides anticipatory guidance for the management of thoughts and feelings when encountering new information that conflicts with existing beliefs; helps Summit participants develop a common language and understanding of systems of privilege and oppression; explains the ethical rationale for learning to see and counter bias, privilege, and oppression in our field; offers a brief roadmap to beginning the journey of helping dismantle institutional oppression within our field; and gives guidance on how to effectively listen to the missing voices in the lactation consultant profession that will be heard at the Lactation Summit.
