The goal of this workshop is to allow working interpreters a chance to revisit the Code of Professional Conduct (CPC) with guidance in order to identify areas of ethical behavior that may be weak or lacking. Due to our busy lives as interpreters, it is easy to become disconnected from the CPC, which should be more prominent in the every day lives of interpreters. Ethical situations arise daily in our work and it is important that we have a better understanding of how the CPC should be impacting our decisions.
