DPI Unpacking Our Privilege

Unpacking Power and Privilege
Presented in ASL

Privilege is inherent in our social structures, in the way society is organized and in how it functions. Because our privilege is woven into our lives and circumstances, we often take it for granted, and rarely stop to consider its benefits—unless they are threatened or taken away from us. We all have prejudices. Discrimination happens when we act on the prejudices that are rooted in our personal, cultural, and institutional lives. This will be one of three presentations focused on unpacking power and privilege and the institutional barriers they create. Following this presentation, participants will discuss the implications of power and privilege on the experiences of members and stakeholders. Each group will offer strategic recommendations for how RID can remove institutional barriers and enhance member engagement at the local, state and national level.

Unpacking & Investigating Our Responsibility Within an Inherited System of Unequalized Power: the Interpreter and Deaf “Consumer” Relationship
Presented in ASL

This is the second of three plenary sessions on the topic of Power and Privilege and the complex relationship that exists between interpreters and Deaf consumers. This session serves to introduce and/or remind participants of guiding principles to consider as we strive to be both service providers and allies. This session will also explore the interpreter/consumer dynamic that CDIs deal with and the significant implications of this dynamic for relationships within the membership, particularly in regards to intersectionality. Following this presentation, participants will discuss and offer strategic recommendations for how RID can reduce institutional and practice barriers impacting the Deaf interpreter/consumer and Deaf-hearing member relationships.

A Member Driven Organization: The Action Continuum Revisited & Revisioned
Presented in ASL

This is the third and final presentation related to the topic of Power and Privilege and focuses on our individual and collective responsibility to recognize when it is creating barriers to relationship and institutional effectiveness, and how and when to respond to the impact of those barriers. The goal of this session is to equip participants with strategies they can employ to effectively address the implications of power and privilege when it leads to barriers that limit our capacity for success and collaboration. Following this presentation, participants will discuss the application of strategies to their individual and collective experience. Each group will offer strategic recommendations for how RID can reduce the negative implications associated with Power and Privilege imbalances and achieve greater equity for members and consumers.
