The 50 Year Gap: Racial Disparities in Interpreting Programs and the Pathway Forward

4.8 (5 votes)

One avenue in which aspiring interpreters take towards acquiring ASL and English proficiency is attending an Interpreter Training Program (ITP). A student's overall perspective of their ITP experience is determined by the nature of their exchanges with faculty and peers, and their academic interactions within the classroom. This workshop discusses recent data on racial disparities in ITP faculty, student body and classroom materials. Participants will have the opportunity to discuss ways in which their individual and collective power can create lasting impact on the push toward racial and cultural inclusion in interpreter education.
