16 JulWorking and participating remotely when you are deaf or hard of hearing

nadp

At the start of COVID pandemic, NADP has recognized a gap in ICT knowledge of online participation platforms among many people in deaf and hard of hearing communities. With the whole world suddenly moving to working and meeting virtually, the need to close this gap was greater than ever. On 20 June 2020 NADP has taken proactive step and organized an online workshop with a topic of working and participating in online meetings. The workshop was aimed at deaf and hard of hearing people who may not have necessary knowledge on online meetings, and this may in turn hold them back from signing up to participate in various webinars.

The format of the workshop ( Zoom meetings) allowed for interactive participation and everyone had the opportunity to ask questions.  Following feedback received, the workshop achieved its aim to close the knowledge gap and empower empowered deaf people to advocate for themselves.  If you would like to find information about next workshop, please contact us by sending email to events@nadp.org.uk
