In Interpreting circles, there are several topics that are often raised when an Interpreter behaves in a way that’s painful to another Interpreter. This counters directly counters RID’s principle. Specifically, in situations that warrants for constructive feedbacks, Interpreters of Color may come away feeling belittled, and judged. Furthermore, Interpreters of Color often must dismiss and actively seek to repress certain types of oppressive, micro-aggressive, and counterproductive responses, which are often seen as “shaming” toward Interpreters of Color.  

This workshop will share some experiences as Deaf Interpreter of Color and/or some professional experiences when working with other Interpreters of Color.  The primary goal of this presentation is to encourage an open dialogue and discussion about the importance of seeing each person’s humanity – looking for the needs beneath the person’s behavior, and gently trying to support more productive ways to meet the needs of Deaf Interpreters of Color and Interpreter/Translators of Color has we continue to learn and thrive in the Interpreting profession.

  1. Participants will identify and define what it means by Calling-In and Calling-Out.
  2. Participants will identify three examples for recognizing the problems and offering objective solutions when starting a Calling-In/Out with Interpreters of Color.
  3. Participants will learn strategies for engaging in dialogue, clarifying values and checking your personal perceptions of others.
  4. Participants will identify micro-aggressive messages that are more harmful to Interpreter of Color than helpful and identify unconscious biases through conversation filters.
