"Hi, my name is Crescenciano Garcia-Campbell Jr. This webinar, (he points to the title, “Understanding Unearned Privileges & Power Dynamics that Impact the Working Relationships with Interpreters of Color) I will be giving in November. I realize the title is wordy--I will share that this workshop will be a snippet of a personal experience that forced me to learn as an interpreter of color about myself and others.

Exactly what I’ve learned, exactly how I’ve examined the situation and perspectives still leaves me in a small conundrum. I invite you to an open conversation about my situation, perhaps, you can add further perspectives and help me see what happened from more angles and thus I can come to terms with what occurred.

Exactly what happened?

Well you will have to attend the workshop and join the conversation that will take place. I would also like to thank The Diversity Academy for inviting me to present at their site, I’m honored and have accepted, folks I hope to see you at the workshop, thank you!"

In our interpreting spheres, we are constantly tasked with making ethical decisions, but also required to maneuver through different social mobility privileges and positions of power that are inherent in our daily interpreting practices.  This webinar will address issues of how some of these privileges and power positions impact our relations with Interpreters of Color and with consumers. Participants will also examine some of these biases and unearned privileges that are played out in the social media or public that impacts their authority dynamics. 

 

Educational Objectives:

  1. Participants will be able to identify assumed power dynamics through discussion of video clips about an ITOC interpreter working on a TV production and the interpersonal dynamics on the set. 

  2. Participants will be able to identify the control over social mobility privilege inherent in business via discussion of a specific situation that occurred on a TV production onset.

  3. Participants will improve their understanding of unearned privileges through a list of specific questions associated with the video clips presented.

  4. Participants will identify the biases and unearned privileges through discussions and sharing of personal experiences as an Interpreter of Color.

About Your Speaker

Crescenciano Garcia-Campbell Jr. 

Crescenciano Garcia-Campbell Jr. hails from a Deaf family where his father is 1 of 3 deaf siblings. What further makes Crescenciano's CODA experience unique is the fact that his father rejected the use of any hearing language and decided he would only use his hands and eyes to communicate. Crescenciano also had the extremely rare but very fortunate opportunity of serving as his father's sign language interpreter since he was 6 years old due to the fact that his family were also evangelists and would frequently spend their days and weekends knocking on people's doors. Crescenciano's early and developmental years were spent voicing into Spanish from a ASL/gesture mix and interpreting from spoken Spanish back into ASL/gesture, then in his adolescent years Crescenciano was interpreting trilingual, via English into ASL and Spanish and vice versa or any combination thereof. Crescenciano is also familiar with LSM, Language of Signs from Mexico as it is one of the other languages that has also permeated his life. In 1990 just after graduating high school Crescenciano was convinced by his deaf auntie to become a professional sign language interpreter and has continued in the profession ever since. Crescenciano also has been a RID/NIC certified interpreter for the past 10 years.  He is also a trailblazer having spent the last 10 years refining his online interpreting practice with an affinity towards creating a professional aesthetic in his service. 

Webinar Overview

Participants will receive a pre-assessment form with questions related to diversity topics.
