Can men join?

Is this organization just for African American women?
No. Currently, minorities (i.e. African American, Hispanic, Asian, etc.) make up less than 20% of the speech language pathologists and audiologists currently holding membership in the American Speech Language and Hearing Association (ASHA). S.I.S.T.A.s was formed to address this disparity and offers a new approach to recruiting and retaining minority women.
