Organization: Deafness Council of Western Australia

Project title: Breaking down barriers

Regions: Australia

Outline of the event:

A free seminar on World Hearing Day, Friday 3 March 2022, where our panel of guest speakers will reflect on overcoming real-life challenges in various sectors, including the barriers that stand in the way of the one in every six Australians who experience hearing loss.
Presented by the Deafness Council of WA, “Breaking Down Barriers” is a unique and motivating forum for all members of our community to hear from the likes of Western Australia Cricket CEO Christina Matthews, WA businessman and philanthropist George Jones and mother of two boys supported in TSH’s Outpost Program, Bronwyn Doak. The event will focus on the barriers they have faced, how they have looked to overcome them and their hope for the future.
