This event is organized by the National Ayurveda Medical Association (NAMA) and is for their members only. I recognize it is odd to have something with, “Inclusion” in the title be exclusively for NAMA members, but I am also appreciative that they are offering this to their members and am happy to support that. You can contact NAMA through email.
Following the Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee’s highly successful inaugural conversation on cultural appropriation in June 2022, we recognized the need to devote more time and attention to this vitally important topic. We’re delighted to welcome Ramkumar Kutty, BAMS; Robert Svoboda, BAMS; and Claudia Welch, DOM; joint authors of a November 2021 article entitled “Appropriation in Ayurveda” back into the webinar space to join us in further exploring this theme.
Our primary focus this time will be to hear from the community! We recognize that our work to better understand and address cultural appropriation is a journey that depends on cross-communication, shared wisdom, and open inquiry. So, we want to hear from you!
This promises to be a lively and enlightening conversation, so we encourage all to register and submit any questions you have early so that we can do our best to include them.
We would highly recommend reading the original article about cultural appropriation in Ayurveda (“Appropriation in Ayurveda”) before the talk.
If you are a member of NAMA, you can theoretically also view the recording of the first conversation in the DEI section of the website, but we can’t find that, so you’ll need to ask them to help you access it…
NAMA’s DEI committee is excited to offer this powerful opportunity to engage in an interactive event on a crucial topic for our community. We look forward to seeing you there!
