Creating an inclusive workplace for deaf colleagues and customers

27 September, 11:00 - 12:00

Chubb, 100 Leadenhall St, London EC3A 3BP, London, United Kingdom

Join us for an interactive session to learn about deaf awareness – thinking about what it means to be deaf and taking practical steps to ensure your helping to create an accessible, inclusive and welcoming workplace for deaf colleagues and customers. This will also include a taster sign language lesson.

The session will be taught by ‘Dot Sign Language’ founder and director Kathleen Grehan and British Sign Language (BSL) teacher Paul Dench. Both teachers are Deaf and will teach in BSL, to enable attendees to fully immerse themselves in the language, as well as ask questions to people who know first-hand what it is to be deaf.

The session will be interpreted by a qualified BSL interpreter.

Deaf Awareness means thinking about what it means to be Deaf, knowing what laws apply to your place of work, and taking practical steps to ensure that you personally are helping your workplace be accessible, inclusive and welcoming to Deaf colleagues and customers.
We teach in BSL, interpreted into English by qualified interpreters, so you can fully immerse yourself in the language.
