    There is a specific dynamic that emerges when one encounters another woo is different. Perceived privilege and power inform the outcome of these encounters- too often they result in acts of oppression. This workshop is an opportunity for discussion for interpreters seeking to explore the systemic nature of Power, Privilege and Oppression examining both foregrounding and residual social constructions.  Part One will focus on the larger system of oppression, this workshop is designed to explore power dynamics and the influence of socialization by unpacking the socially constructed system. Part Two will focus on the individual, this workshop is designed so interpreters can engage in a meaningful exchange with colleagues to implement strategies, for engaging in productive dialog about difference, to encourage change, mitigate microaggression, and foster personal and professional growth.
