Creating Welcoming Spaces


Presented by Brigitta Toruño with UNO Translations and Communications, LLC, Washington DC

Removal of roadblock that hamper employment opportunity has long since been a conversation when the topics of gender or ethnic parity occur. Yet, an often overlooked element is language barrier.

Brigitta will share best practices against which attendees can immediately return to work and begin benchmarking.
