Unpacking Sexuality: Bringing Unconscious Bias to the Forefront - Bethany Gehman
When: Saturday, Sept. 26 - 10am - 3pm (with 1 hour lunch break). Where: Webinar on Zoom. This workshop is intended to provide interpreters and interpreting students with opportunities to examine and analyze sexuality issues, explore values/attitudes/beliefs about sexuality, identify situations where skills with sexuality interpreting would be useful, and apply what was learned to interpreting practice. Participants will also learn appropriate and efficient tools aimed at making them more comfortable with interpreting sexuality content. Consent is not applicable only in sexual relationships—it is also applicable in professional relationships between an interpreter and client.
