Salon: Deaf Creatives and a Supportive Workplace

RESCHEDULED! As creatives, we live and breathe communication, but a work environment can have unique challenges and opportunities for a person who is deaf or hard of hearing. Many aren’t sure how to create a supportive workplace and address language and ability as part of a diverse team.

Join us for an intimate discussion with deaf graphic designer and Gallaudet University professor Scott Carollo. He’ll talk about his experiences working on a creative team, insights into how we can be more inclusive, and addressing language and ability as part of a diverse team.

An American Sign Language (ASL) interpreter will be present.

Please plan to arrive at Teaism around 7:30 a.m. to allow time to purchase breakfast refreshments and network with other members. The Salon begins promptly at 8:00 a.m.

AIGA DC Salons are free, intimate roundtable discussions open to AIGA members only. Check your AIGA membership status at before registering.
