Peer Support Groups
Full members have access to a number of peer support groups, where members can come together to discuss dilemmas and seek support from colleague interpreters of colour, who may share similar experiences.
Each forum has a specific theme, e.g. general, on the job, training, peer support, so that members can better engage and focus their discussions. Each group has its own team of moderators and members are required to agree and follow the guidelines for each group.
Our peer support groups are closed spaces for interpreters of colour to explore the challenges they face as people of colour working in a predominately white society. These groups have strict rules on confidentiality.
