Conference: Future Learning and Work

The future of career guidance – as envisaged by the Deaf community. Experience a captivating video drama and gain insights from distinguished speakers, all hoping to influence the universal design of guidance and inclusion. Engage with interactive sessions, innovative mentoring approaches, and expert panels as we discuss advocacy, policy, and professional development and how it can shape transitions into learning and work.

The conference will share how cutting-edge career planning initiatives and future-ready programs can be designed specifically for Deaf individuals and how such approaches can change the trajectory of Deaf people in relation to unemployment and underemployment. The conference promises a dynamic environment where you can connect deeply with learners’ aspirations, share ideas, and contribute to the future of inclusive career planning. The day will conclude with a riveting exploration of Deaf cultural agency, language, and community, another factor for inclusive career guidance.

Join us for a day of exploration, conversation, and collaboration – this conference offers a unique opportunity to discuss and envision universal design for career guidance and transitions as considered by the Deaf community.
