Calling All Stutterers Who Participate in Video Calls

Do you find videoconferencing to be particularly draining? Do you struggle to make your voice heard in virtual meetings?

Join us for our workshop titled “Claim Your Virtual Presence” at this year’s National Stuttering Association (NSA) annual conference in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The workshop will take place on July 6th at 3:30-4:30PM ET.

Building on AImpower’s research on additional challenges faced by individuals with stuttering during video conferencing, this workshop aims to empower the stuttering community by:

  • Providing practical strategies for individuals who stutter to actively participate in video conferences with greater comfort and ease.
  • Developing a set of recommendations for meeting organizers and employers to better accommodate individuals who stutter in virtual and hybrid meetings.

The workshop will be open and collaborative, featuring various interactive activities that guide all the participants to share our experiences with virtual meetings and learn from one another.

Claim Your Virtual Presence” will be facilitated by Shaomei Wu, the founder of, and Gary Goldsmith, the founder of Improv @ Work. Both facilitators have personal experience with stuttering and are deeply committed to achieving digital equity by creating engaging virtual communication environments for everyone.

Mark your calendars for July 6th at 2:30 PM and join us at the NSA Conference. Together, we can bring about meaningful systemic changes in the lives of individuals who stutter.
