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.

Unpacking Our Privilege

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.

Translating Wisdom into Action: Where Do We Go from Here?
Presented in ASL

This session will provide discussion around the Strategic Planning Process in which the RID Board of Directors will engage during the Fall of 2017 and how the work of the small groups during the leadership track fits into that process. Strategic planning is critical for organizations in addressing fluctuating economic trends and market variables. For organizations that want to succeed, define priorities and direction in a strategic plan—it is like a roadmap. During periods of crisis, when survival and stability are the priority, strategic plans are interrupted and must be put on hold. But, as recovery begins and the factors leading to the crisis are stabilized, strategic planning is essential. RID has reached that point and with the help of the leadership track participants, will be able to move the planning forward.
