Demystifying deafness and perceived barriers to employment Symposium, Sept. 25/19
The unemployment rate for deaf people is unacceptably high, according to the Canadian Association of the Deaf.
This problem can be addressed once we understand strategies that celebrate everyone's skills, passions and abilities.
Come out during International Week of the Deaf to discuss:
- What is deafness?
- What strengths do deaf people bring to the workplace?
- How can we improve employment among the deaf community?
When? Wednesday, September 25, 2019 from 6pm - 9pm
Where? J137, Mohawk College, 135 Fennell Avenue West, Hamilton, ON
Who? Employers and community members are invited to this free event!
