Our partner DIG welcomes you to come dive deeper and participate in their regional conference Accessibility Innovations by DIG. This is a great opportunity for you to learn more about what it’s like to work in the public sector. The Accessibility Innovations’ presenters will share their individual experiences in career advancement, working with a team, and increasing accessibility for all. This conference also offers a variety of informative sessions that cover strategies for overcoming communication barriers in the workplace, training resources for government career advancement, and discussions of issues affecting a diverse workforce. Each of these workshops are intended to help attendees build and improve their interpersonal and leadership skills.

This conference is open to all Pac Rim attendees who may be interested in enriching their knowledge of Deaf culture, community, and language. We hope that many of you will take this rare opportunity to attend both Pac Rim and Accessibility Innovations by DIG. We appreciate it if you are interested and please register no later than Feb 15th.
