DEAFLUENT BIPOC INTERPRETER MENTORSHIP PROGRAM
As a certified Minority and Women Owned Business Enterprise, DEAFLUENT has had the privilege of partnering with a number of diversity and inclusion-focused organizations over the years. We are proud that our ever-expanding roster of more than 200 interpreters can meet the various preferences of Deaf consumers.
Black Lives Matter, Indigenous Lives Matter, Latinx Lives Matter. Our agency works with so many people who have intersecting marginalized identities. We stand firmly as allies, and we want to be part of the change.
The communities we serve are extremely diverse, but the unfortunate truth is that the interpreting field does not reflect this diversity – even here in New York City.
Our agency is committed to doing the work within our own industry by actively addressing the diversity gap among interpreters right here in NYC. We are currently developing a mentorship program for Black and POC identifying peoples who are novice interpreters, which we expect to roll out in Spring 2021.
We look forward to this exciting opportunity to support the success of new Black and POC interpreters in the field, and to better meet the linguistic and cultural needs of those with hearing loss.
Over the past few years, we have been actively expanding the diversity of our interpreter team and we are always looking to hire new interpreters from different racial, ethnic, cultural, and educational backgrounds. If you know any interpreters who might be interested in joining the DEAFLUENT team, especially interpreters from marginalized identities, please have them submit a resume and we will be in touch.
