1 - Career Success after Hearing Loss

Date & Time: 
Feb 15 2017 - 8:00pm - 9:00pm

This webinar is also available for playback using the Blackboard Collaborate Launcher.

Summary:
This webinar will focus on career success research in the general population, Dr. Baldridge’s current research on career success after hearing loss, and participants’ own employment experiences. We will discuss the types of jobs, tasks, and organizational contexts in which people with hearing loss are more likely to be successful. We will also discuss day-to-day behaviors associated with workplace success, including management of supervisors, coworkers, and accommodations. Guided by Dr. Baldridge’s current research findings, we will discuss post-hearing loss quests for meaningful work and big picture answers to “Who am I?”, “Am I still successful?” as well as redefinition of oneself (e.g., I am now both a person with a disability and a successful professional) and career success (e.g., I now care about service to society as much as I care about material success).

2 - Chapters: Attracting and Keeping Younger Adults

Date & Time: 
Feb 17 2017 - 2:00pm - 3:00pm

This webinar is also available for playback using the Blackboard Collaborate Launcher.

Summary:
A recurring question HLAA chapter and state organization leaders ask is, “How can we get young people to come to our meetings? If we are able to get them in the door, they seem to come once or twice and then they don’t come back.”

It’s reasonable to assume that people decide to come to HLAA meetings because they are looking for something. Believe it or not, even in the age of ready availability of hearing loss information on the internet, not everything active young adults need in order to live well with their hearing loss can be found online.

In this webinar Valerie will share insights HLAA has learned from young adults with hearing loss about what they need. The webinar will offer suggestions about where to find active young adults with hearing loss, how to help them, and program ideas to get them to come back.  While we can’t guarantee that EVERY suggestion will work for EVERY chapter EVERY time, the odds are very good that at least some of them will help increase young adult participation  in chapter activities. Please make your plans to join us for a 40-45 minute presentation with 15-20 minutes of time allocated to discussion. The webinar will be captioned and it will be archived on the HLAA webinar portal for those unable to participate in real-time.
