Remote work. Zoom fatigue. Economic uncertainty. Anxiety? Sure, but this is the time for the deaf and hard of hearing to change work culture. For the first time, no one can tell you that this is how it's been done. Join us to learn how to take this opportunity to build better remote culture for better collaboration and less videoconferencing and meetings. Proactive use of accessibility techniques will help both you and organizations thrive.
This seminar series brings together Kian, David, and Jenny who are among the best in their fields at helping businesses thrive and work remotely with inclusion for all. The skills and concepts discussed transcend technology and focuses on people and connections. We hope that you will not only better advocate for yourself, but create change that is better for everyone in your organization.
