Detail:

The work of translation can't be taken lightly. Providing linguistically relevant materials is a key strategy for equity in QRIS. This session will focus on analyzing Oregon's efforts to make the QRIS linguistically equitable, identify strategies to support translation efforts in their own systems, examine barriers to translation, identify strategies to overcome barriers, and create linguistically relevant materials.
