DSU offers online, video-based training to help foster an inclusive environment and cultivate a culture of allyship for the Deaf and hard-of-hearing communities.
Why does Deaf Culture Training matter?Training Solutions
The Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) industry is growing quickly. Many businesses and organizations are implementing DEI trainings for their employees, but often the Deaf community is left out of these conversations.
Consider hosting Deaf culture training to provide an education about cultural competency and expand your organization’s understanding of Deaf and hard-of-hearing culture.
Training can help eliminate stereotypes, assumptions, and discrimination. Cultural competency will provide an understanding of what it means to be Deaf, what accommodations may be required, and how to connect beyond the language barrier so everyone can effectively collaborate.
DSU provides training to help foster an inclusive environment and cultivate a culture of allyship for the Deaf and hard-of-hearing communities.
Our online, video-based Deaf Culture Training contains 5 modules and 11 lessons. It can be completed together as an organization, or by individuals at their own pace. Add Deaf culture training to your team’s professional development plans!
