SignSource – BSL

March 30, 2023

The concept of Deaf Gain offers a radical reframing that views being deaf not as a “loss” but an advantage, a different and remarkable way of being. Deaf people bring a positive gain to the workplace through the innovation generated by their lived experiences. From creating sign languages to developing texting nearly 60 years ago to building a multibillion sign language economy, deaf people have been the engine for countless innovations and significant wealth creation.

Diversity is understanding the perspectives of others and challenging our perceptions of others on a daily basis. Join Anthony Sinclair, founder of Sign Source for a unique insight into the lives of those who are deaf and consider the strategies and awareness that can make your space one where deaf colleagues and customers can belong
