2015 Deaf Interpreter Conference

The inaugural 2015 Deaf Interpreter Conference opened Saturday, June 20, 2015, bringing together 200+ Deaf
Interpreters for a four-day exploration. Topics examined during this historic gathering ranged from reframing the role of Deaf Interpreters and ethical considerations to vicarious trauma and career development/advancement.

May the expressions of organizers, presenters, and attendees captured in the StreetLeverage coverage be viewed as the hand of the Deaf Interpreter Community extended in the interest of mutual respect and power-sharing, authentic partnership, and a desire to define a ‘win-win’ that reshapes the field to be more inclusive of all those who participate within it.
