Linguistic and Cultural Diversity:  

Learning from Each Other 

Saturday, Nov 12th

“Representation Matters: Addressing Social Injustice”  presented by Erica West Oyedele, MA, NIC and Leang Ngov

Participants will have an opportunity to unpack concepts surrounding social justice, intersectionality, and power & privilege. This presentation takes an intersectional look at the field of interpreting and incorporates discussions surrounding race, gender, sex, and class among others while making ties to the impacts of language deprivation on Deaf people. Interpreters will consider the factors that influence how one acquires linguistic and cultural competence and correlations between an interpreter’s cultural and linguistic fluency and the language deprivation of Deaf people will be made.

Sunday, Nov 13th

"Mentoring:  Learning from Each Other" presented by Cindy Farnham, CI, CT, NAD IV, NIC ADV, EIPA 5.0

Participants will receive an overview of the current practices within the field of professional mentoring.  The current philosophy of what "mentoring" means will be discussed.   Participants will consider how mentoring benefits the mentor, the interpreter and the community.  Strategies for self-assessment will be taught.  Mentoring activities will be discussed and modeled.
