 Some comments from attendees of the 2/23/17 live event:

  • This was excellent! I am going to share with interpreters in my state and hope they will watch the recorded webinar so we can all learn and grow.
  • Clear explanations and examples and great opportunities to participate. Awesome!
  • I have a certification on Implicit Bias from the Center for Cultural Intelligence and found this session very relevant and well designed. Implicit bias can be a tricky topic to address, let alone teach. The presenter did a wonderful job; she was very successful at creating a non-judgment, low-anxiety teaching environment, as well as at acknowledging and validating the attendees input. 
  • Very well organized and paced. When the presenter uses really relevant examples from her own life to illustrate or clarify, it stimulates understanding and comparison. Good slides. Thanks!
  • I was training a new interpreter in the morning and I mentioned several of the things that were presented at this webinar. It really opened my eyes and my interest to learn more about the subject. I was just scratching the surface of this topic with my group.  


After the introduction of implicit bias, this webinar delves into its impact on our work as interpreters in healthcare settings.  This interactive session helps participants learn strategies for identifying and addressing their own biases.  Additionally, participants have opportunities to discuss ways to easily introduce implicit bias into classrooms and trainings.

Learning Objectives:

1. Understand the definition of “unconscious / implicit bias” and its impact on our everyday interactions.

2.  Demonstrate techniques for identifying implicit biases and strategies for addressing these biases. 

3.  Discuss ways to introduce implicit bias into interpreter education programs.
