BLUE Workshop 1A: "Mentoring-A BIPOC Perspective" presented by LaToya Childs (0.3 PPO CEUs)

This workshop will use the analogy of interpreting being a journey for the mentee and mentor and we will discuss what both parties need to “pack” to make it successfully to their destinationDiscussions of working with BIPOC mentees and mentors will also include strategies for implementation for successful experiences and how to minimize racial disparities during the mentoring sessions.

GREEN Workshop 1B: "Ethics of Interpreting Part I" presented by Shonna Magee (0.3 PS CEUs)*

Ethics are the foundation of the interpreting profession since we are in a position of trust. In order to function as an ethical interpreter and to be able to make ethical decisions, interpreters must have intimate knowledge of the tenets (and sub-tenets) of the CPC. This workshop will discuss, in depth, each tenet of the CPC and practice applying tenets to scenarios. 

*If you register for the GREEN Track, please be sure you also register for the Laws Workshop on Friday evening since it is a prerequisite.

BLUE Workshop 2A: "If Words Were Money, You Could Be a Millionaire" presented by LaToya Childs (0.3 PS CEUs)

This workshop on interpreting from ASL to English will focus on more advanced interpreting skills.  We’ll look beyond the signs for the meaning, focusing on how “hearing people” say the equivalent message in English. There will be hands-on practice, so you will need headphones and a way to watch a video and record yourself, such as a laptop or tablet in addition to your phone. 

GREEN Workshop 2B: "Ethics of Interpreting Part II" presented by Shonna Magee (0.3 PS CEUs)

This is a continuation of the workshop described above. In order to receive CEUs, participants must attend both Part I and Part II of the Ethics of Interpreting. This is a 6 hour workshop that is split into two sessions due to time considerations.

Workshop 3: "Plan For Success" presented by LaToya Childs (0.15 PS CEUs)
