This will follow the structure of a panel session, then attendees will have the choice of two streams, Terptopia or Terpageddon? There will be three presentations in each stream and attendees can swap between them. The recordings of both streams will be sent out to you afterward so you can catch up.
Chaired by Andy Carmichael, our current chair, the panel will look at how interpreter and translator training and everyday work has changed.
The panel will have a variety of experiences to compare and discuss.
Brett Best and Rachel Wilkins present Horizontal Violence.
Sam Riddle (NUBSLI) and Marcus (NRCPD) will be discussing working conditions for communication professionals and working together for change.
Robert Adam and Sandra Schügerl are looking at Deaf Interpreters and Translators and their role in the profession.
Members of our Equality and Diversity working group will be talking about the protected characteristics and how discrimination can occur. They will raise awareness of subconscious discrimination and what positive action we should all be taking to make ASLI and the wider interpreting community a more equal and fair place to work.
Our final event will be looking at ‘Women interpreting in high profile roles’. Jill Henshaw will chair this session and the panel will discuss why women are less likely to be found in media, international and high profile roles. The panel will consist of Jemina Napier (Sign Language Interpreter and Interpreter Trainer), Helen Foulkes (Sign Language Translator), Dionne Thomas (Sign Language Interpreter) and Romy O’Callaghan (Irish Sign Language Interpreter)
