Mission At Weaving Cultures, LLC, we garner the experience and expertise of a wide range of healthcare, social service, and education professionals in order to offer interesting and useful workshops and seminars with the ultimate aim of improving the respectfulness and effectiveness of care/service delivery to culturally diverse and limited English proficiency populations in the Greater Twin Cities area and beyond. We provide interpreting services in over 70 languages. We provide 24/7 service to all counties in Minnesota.
Our experience in healthcare, education, human services, law firms, private and non-profit businesses has made us passionate in providing quality services to all clients, vendors and LEP population with qualified and trained interpreters. We carefully screen all of our interpreters through training requirements in the field and language proficiency evaluations to qualify our interpreters and translators.
Vision Through our workshops, we strive to enhance the skill sets and knowledge base of Minnesota’s healthcare, legal sector, social service, and educational professionals, so that both parties in cross-cultural, across-language care and service delivery settings may feel more capable, engaged, respected, and satisfied by outcomes.
CONNECTING ACROSS LANGUAGE & CULTURE
We are passionate, motivated individuals with a combined 20+ years working in primarily healthcare, legal, and educational settings with culturally diverse populations and families with limited English proficiency (LEP). In our professional journeys we have learned a lot about what it means to provide respectful and effective services across language and culture.
Through this venture, our goal is to provide learning opportunities to other professionals serving LEP and immigrant/refugee populations, bringing various skill sets and knowledge bases to light through a series of lectures and workshops led by professionals from all areas and aspects of care.
With our many 40 hour interpreting training over the years, we are proud to offer quality interpreting and translating services to hospitals, clinics, law firms and school districts. We believe in professionals that are trainable, reliable and deliver on time every time. We only work with the best language professionals in the state whom are trained and continue to be active in the field through professional training and certifications.
Throughout the year, we offer dynamic professional workshops addressing a wide range of topics related to providing care/services across language and culture.
Some workshops provided are culture- or language-specific while others focus on a broader topic or skill set applicable regardless of the population at hand. Some have a specific audience in mind (i.e. interpreters, healthcare providers, social services, legal interpreting and ethics or educational professionals) while others provide content appropriate for a mixed audience.
Depending on the topic, workshops are half-day, full-day, or 2-day and may be eligible for continuing education credits.
