D/deaf and Bossing It

Part of WOW – Women of the World

Navigate the challenges and opportunities of being D/deaf in the workplace at a talk in British Sign Language (BSL).

What’s it like for D/deaf women as 9 to 5 employees, freelancers or business owners in a hearing world? And how has social media and technology amplified the voices of D/deaf entrepreneurs?

Explore subjects including negotiating Access to Work for employers and employees and how good communication is everyone’s responsibility, and celebrate D/deaf-led businesses and co-workers.

Our panel features model and lifestyle blogger Heroda Berhane.

More speakers to be announced.
