The Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf, Inc. is 501(c)3 non-profit, and an equal opportunity employer.
RID has played a leading role in establishing a national standard of quality for interpreters and transliterators. We encourage the growth of the profession, educate the public about the vital role of interpreters and transliterators and work to ensure equal opportunity and access for all individuals.
The mission and values of RID are encompassed in our strategic plan, reflected in the statements below and incorporated into the actions and activities of all RID initiatives:
Mission – What We Do:
The Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf is a professional organization for interpreters who use signed and spoken languages. As members of RID we commit to providing ethical, high-quality interpreting services for our clients; we also commit to our own continuous professional development.
Vision – Our Desired Future:
The Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf envisions a future:
*where the linguistic rights of Deaf people are recognized as equal to those of hearing people, and are supported by RID members;
*where interpreted interactions are as viable as direct communication;
*where RID’s activities and members demonstrate value for the Deaf community and its members;
*and... where the interpreting profession is formally recognized and advanced by rigorous professional development, standards of conduct, and interpreter credentials.
The Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf (RID) understands the necessity of multicultural awareness and sensitivity. Therefore, as an organization, we are committed to diversity both within the organization and within the profession of sign language interpreting.
Our commitment to diversity reflects and stems from our understanding of present and future needs of both our organization and the profession. We recognize that in order to provide the best service as the national certifying body among signed and spoken language interpreters, we must draw from the widest variety of society with regards to diversity in order to provide support, equality of treatment, and respect among interpreters within the RID organization.
Therefore, RID defines diversity as differences which are appreciated, sought, and shaped in the form of the following categories: gender identity or expression, racial identity, religious affiliation, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, deaf or hard of hearing status, disability status, age, geographic locale (rural vs. urban), sign language interpreting experience, certification status and level, and language bases (e.g. those who are native to or have acquired ASL and English, those who utilize a signed system, among those using spoken or signed languages) within both the profession of sign language interpreting and the RID organization.
To that end, we strive for diversity in every area of RID and its Headquarters. We know that the differences that exist among people represent a 21st century population and provide for innumerable resources within the sign language interpreting field.
