Interpreters Unlimited Named Finalist Honoree for Outstanding Social Responsibility
By: Interpreters Unlimited
IU is extremely proud of this honor as their operations are based on helping others in the local community and beyond. It is something near and dear to their heart as an organization. As a Language Service Provider, IU actively contributes to the betterment of society through their core language services along with their extensive philanthropy, charity, and volunteerism.
The language services that IU provides ensure that diverse, underserved, and marginalized communities can access critical information, essential services, and opportunities when they need them. Whether it's translating immigration documents for a family urgently seeking asylum, interpreting for a Limited-English Speaking patient in an emergency room, or providing American Sign Language for a Deaf child starting school, their dedication to linguistic inclusivity creates a more equitable and accessible society.
Giving back locally, nationally, and internationally is a big part of the IU company culture. They always strive to connect with good causes and those in need, doing their part to try and make the world a better place, hoping to inspire others to do the same. IU is deeply involved and dedicated to charities such as the San Diego Food Bank, the Ronald McDonald House, the Syrian Community Network, and they give 2% of most contract revenue back to other local charities.
From volunteering with children's hospitals and supporting local law enforcement, to working with PATH (People Assisting the Homeless) San Diego providing housing, food, medical/street outreach programs, mental health support and more to the homeless, IU is involved in so much. This giving back includes mentoring 100's of up-and-coming entrepreneurs in the business community through the San Diego Chapter SBA SCORE Program and the San Diego Chairman's Round Table, and inspiring and preparing young San Diego students to succeed and become future leaders in business through Junior Achievement San Diego.
"With the success of the business, we feel a responsibility to give back however we can, and we are happy to be in a position where to help make a positive social and environmental impact on the world, inside and outside of our community", said IU COO Shamus Sayed.
The final award winners will be announced in the October 16th print and digital issues of the San Diego Business Journal. You can see the finalist honorees here: https://www.sdbj.com/
