OverviewEngage. Employ. Empower.
The Let's Get to Work initiative is the first-ever, statewide employment initiative undertaken by the Arizona Commission for the Deaf and the Hard of Hearing.
Working with Arizonas business community and its leaders, we hope to reduce the unemployment and underemployment that disproportionately affects our community members.
