We’ll be honest — we’re pretty excited about putting this little informally formal pitch together because of the potential to not only start a conversation with vibrant, progressive people, but we really believe it's the time to do so. Our growth over the last few years is in no way accidental; we’re a collection of professionals who love people and have a skillset to create connections. We’re also a collection of people who love and understand the promise of technology and how it can create connections, understanding, and access. It’s just that the people we create connections for have fewer choices.
If you're reading this, you recognize that people and their technology could be more or better. From reading this website and speaking with our employees, we hope you get the sense of our passion for what we call The "Both/And." Technology can be used to create more than one option. We just have to make it happen.
The U.S. recently marked the 20th anniversary of the ADA, the Americans with Disabilities Act. And yet still, most companies and organizations still only create accessibility options to what barely works within compliance with that act. People with disabilities are rarely given a choice. ASLI and the family of language service companies under the New Language Capital umbrella are working to create the “both/and” choices technology promised us. We have never supported nor had the desire to make financial gains off of an “either/or” mentality of bare legal minimums. Employees and partners, customers and clients, who are also part of the Deaf community, deserve “both/and” choices in their work and their life. What works for them as people. Not what works for businesses following a law.
