Giving back to the communities we work with has always been an integral part of doing business at Still Interpreting Inc. Having been afforded the privilege to work within and alongside the Deaf community, reciprocity has been a guiding value of the company. Over the years, giving back has taken place in many ways, shapes, and forms. However, more recently, it has solidified into three main streams.
Deaf, Hard of Hearing, and DeafBlind Communities
By sponsoring community initiatives and events with pro-bono services and donations. Financial sponsorship of events or providing interpreters at no cost allows us to give back to the community we work within in a meaningful way by reducing communication barriers and supporting community projects.
Interpreter Professional Development
By providing high-quality workshops and training at no cost to interpreters. Providing these opportunities supports interpreters in their skill development, practitioner wellness, and ethical practice. In addition to providing workshops, mentorship in a variety of specialized interpreting settings has been a long standing practice.
Not-for-profit and Community-based Organizations
By offering discounted rates to not-for-profit and community-based organizations who are booking interpreters. When budgets are tight, we give back to organizations that are valuing accessibility and inclusion by offering discounted rates on interpreting services.
If you would like more information about sponsorship of Deaf community events from Still Interpreting Inc. or reduced rates for not-for-profit and community-based organizations, please reach out to our office.
