    What: January 2015 Membership Meeting

    Topic: Engagement with the Hearing Impaired in the Work Place

    Ms. Good presented this workshop within the Inclusion and Culture Track, at WE14.

    This workshop will provide some very basic American Sign Language (ASL) words and phrases that will help you to better engage your hearing impaired co-workers or other acquaintances.    Learning ASL will foster inclusion and engagement and will impact your work/life environment positively.    This will be a hands-on and fun learning experience.  Handouts and suggested resources will be provided for future reference.

    Speaker: Wendy Good, Manager Programs, Northrop Grumman

    Ms. Good has her BSME (Penn State), her MS in Technical Management (Johns Hopkins), and is Six Sigma Black Belt certified. Wendy learned American Sign Language (ASL) to grow friendships with the Deaf woman at church, then later used this experience at work to engage two Deaf employees and educate others.
