The legacy of CD

2016 marked the passing of Patricia Yachimski Geddry, a beloved member of our original Collective Dialogue group. The 3 remaining members came together several times. But the shifted balance of our way of being together led us to contemplate reinventing CD. It would not be the same without Trisha, who would have wanted us to continue the work. Not knowing if we could reinvent the group by adding to it, and given that it would require time and intention to bring us there, we chose to invite 2 trusted colleagues to join us in an experiment to reinvent CD.
This reinvented Collective Dialogue group continues to evolve and enrich each of us.

Rejecting certainty, embracing curiosity

We want to hear from you!

If you have a passion for the work we do as interpreters, committing to ongoing meetings with like-minded colleagues may offer you a potentially rewarding and fruitful experience as seasoned interpreters. Those who have been in the field for more than a few years often note that professional development opportunities that enrich and engage them are difficult to find. Establishing a Collective Dialogue group may inspire you and lift you beyond the plateau you've landed on. Contact us to begin the process of creating your own CD.
