Towards a More Inclusive Community
This mini conference aims to improve the relationship between the Deaf community and interpreters; more specifically how can interpreters work together with a Deaf Interpreter as a team. Fostering this relationship in turn benefits the consumer. How can we achieve that?
Nationally recognized presenters, MJ Bienvenu, Jimmy Beldon and Patty McCutcheon will be leading us through the process of discovering a more inclusive working and Deaf community.
The conference will wrap up with an open forum entailing a professional discussion lead by a local facilitator, Scot Atkins.
