LEAP SESSION: LANGUAGE JUSTICE FOR A BRIGHTER FUTURE!
Amer Al Fayadh, CHI Founder, CommunicationEssentialsLLC.com
Language justice can improve communication between service providers and the Limited English Proficient (LEP) recipients. Around the world, organizations are recognizing the importance of informing a team’s decision-making process, while serving LEPs. During this presentation, we will explore language justice in an interactive way, equipping participants with tools and resources to successfully serve community needs.
Purpose: One of the critical components in a successful Language Access Plan implementation is to have staff members’ buy-in. Staff members across the organization must work together to provide a positive experience for everyone, no matter what language they speak, and this is language justice.
