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 Arizona’s business community and its leaders, we hope to reduce the unemployment and underemployment that disproportionately affects our community members and help the promise of economic security and independence become a sustainable reality.
We’re here to assist Arizona businesses in the recruiting, interviewing, employing, and promoting of Deaf, Hard of Hearing, and DeafBlind people.
It is our intent to make the State of Arizona the recognized leader in creating economic independence for members of the D/HH/DB community by helping businesses embrace their unique talents, abilities, and work ethic.
Please contact the Commission for help with:
- Corporate diversity and sensitivity training specific to the D/HH/DB
- Job posting
- Interviewing best practices
- Employee orientation best practices
- Workplace accommodations
- Technological assistance
- Arizona Relay Service
- Interpreter services and CART providers
“I was a bit concerned about how my clients would treat me as a deaf person. Fortunately, I proved myself to them! It has been my dream to work with dogs as a young boy due to being an animal lover. This part-time job is perfect for me as a full-time college student.”
