A year into the global pandemic, as the world adapts to new ways of living and working, deaf and hard of hearing professionals face new communication challenges where many of the tried and true communication strategies are no longer as effective. However, rather than to write these strategies off as outdated, the opportunity may be in leveling up those strategies to take advantage of the dramatic increase in mainstreamed use and familiarity with technology, such as video conferencing tools.
On Tuesday March 30, 2021, the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Bar Association (DHHBA) will present a one-hour webinar featuring three legal services professionals who will share their experience and tips, including some communication strategies, on how to network effectively virtually and in person in the “new normal” ways of interacting with hearing professionals.
- Anat Maytal, Associate, BakerHostetler
- Taye Akinola, Paralegal Specialist, U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC)
- Susan Mizner, Esq., Director, Disability Rights Program, American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU)
