Financial, educational, and cultural barriers have historically contributed to the underrepresentation of BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) music therapists in the field, negatively impacting equitable access to music therapy services for some of our most vulnerable and marginalized communities. Join this panel of BIPOC music therapy leaders to learn about their professional experiences and how we can address these inequities, effect meaningful change, and improve the human experience for all in the music therapy community.
