YLNG would like to thank Lisette Delgado, Claire Bowern, Raffaella Zanuttini, and Shylo Gonzalez for sharing their valuable insight, knowledge, and journeys. The goals of this event were to demonstrate that no matter where you come from you do have a voice, how to maintain a comfortable work atmosphere, and how to deal with uncomfortable situations that may arise because English is not your first language.
Please stay tuned for part two of this event.
In the meantime, based on some of the issues that participants brought up at this event, we thought it might be helpful to share an article about linguistic human rights from a sociolinguistic perspective: https://bit.ly/2V9GKm8.
