BIPOC Interpreters [FREELANCE]As a certified Woman and Minority Owned Business, SignNexus highly values the contributions of Black, Indigenous, Asian American and Pacific Islander, Latinx, and other POC-identifying people to the field of sign language interpreting. The clients and communities we serve are extremely diverse, and the unfortunate truth is that our field does not adequately reflect this diversity. Matching Deaf consumers with interpreters who accommodate both their language needs and their personal identities is one of our top priorities. Building a representative interpreting team has long been a cornerstone of our agency, and many of our client organizations are led by (or provide services for) people with multiple intersecting identities. Over the past several years, SignNexus has actively worked to expand the diversity of our interpreter team. We are always looking to contract with new interpreters from different racial, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds. We offer competitive rates and a range of assignments.
