Deaf Leadership in International Disaster Policy
Over the last decade, national governments and international human rights groups have devoted increasing attention to Deaf and disability inclusion and leadership in disaster and humanitarian contexts; however, much of the available policy addresses high level rights, not the mechanisms, technologies, or systems necessary to operationalize accessible language and communication processes across all aspects of disaster management. This panel centers on ways that policy can be improved to advance Deaf leadership in disaster management, including the infrastructures and funding mechanisms needed to support implementation.

The webinar will be hosted in American Sign Language, International Sign, and with English CART live captioning. For accommodation requests and information, please contact idma@gallaudet.edu by October 15th, 2021.
