NAI Hosts the First Global Excellence in Interpretation FREE WEBINAR SERIES
Join NAI for a panel discussion on excellence in diversity and inclusion in the interpretive profession. How can interpretive sites better serve underserved communities? How can we create inclusive employment opportunities by making jobs accessible socioeconomic, ethnic, and other demographic categories? Diversifying our visitor base, creating inclusive marketing campaigns, and adjusting our programming and hiring practices to be more accessible are all key points in defining excellence in interpretation.
While interpreters have shifted to digital communication through online webinars and meetings, interpreters’ professional associations around the world have increased their activity, developing and providing online services to members, including training, conferences, one-off events, and more. This accelerated trend has given us an opportunity to share good practices more widely across the world, with interpreters from different countries and indeed different continents joining events of interest to them. This series will develop a pilot international webinar series under the Global Alliance for Heritage Interpretation banner.
This yearlong series of webinars hosted by seven interpretation organizations around the world is free to all interpreters, regardless of membership or affiliation with any of the sponsor organizations! English-Spanish live translation will be available.
Webinars will be hosted by the Association for Heritage Interpretation, InterpatMX (Mexico), Interpretation Australia, Interpretation Canada, Interpret Europe, Interpretation Network New Zealand, and the National Association for Interpretation on the following dates in 2022:
