pgEd Webinar | Difference, not deficit: Reframing the conversation around genetics, deafness, and disability

May 10, 2022 11:30am – 1pm EST 

Public engagement requires us to interrogate our language and the thinking behind it. What ideas are embedded in our language about genetics? What messages are we sending? How are people being impacted? In approaching these questions with humility, we have an opportunity to dismantle barriers that are excluding people from engaging with genetics, learn about assumptions that can cause harm, and create inclusive environments in our labs and classrooms.

Join pgEd for a program with our colleagues from Gallaudet University and the ASL Education Center who have challenged our thinking, expanded our minds, and illuminated pathways for engaging with deaf and hard-of-hearing people.
