Many of our work routines have been disrupted with the COVID pandemic. We want to take the opportunity to come together as deaf employees to share strategies and success stories with our community.

NDC will host TWO live online panels for deaf employees. These events will be conducted in ASL with English interpretation and captioning. For additional access requests email: [email protected].
