May Kickoff: Deaf-Friendly Certified Business

Posted by: Staff Writer on May 1, 2017

We’re kicking off the month of May with big things, announcing the first five Deaf-Friendly Certified Businesses. It’s important to us to celebrate the work of businesses who are not just trying to make the world a more deaf-friendly place, but are making their businesses deaf-friendly places to be.

.

Who decides if a business is deaf-friendly? Deaf consumers. Their reviews on our website, their ideas about what deaf-friendly businesses look like were used to develop the criteria for our Deaf-Friendly Certified Business program. We took things up a notch by making sure each business completed Deaf-Friendly Customer Service training, at no charge to the business.


In the month of May, keep your eyes open for our weekly announcements where we will be recognizing one new Deaf-Friendly Certified Business a week. Of the first five chosen, three are Deaf-owned. We look forward to growing this program and expect new businesses to  become Deaf-Friendly Certified on a monthly basis.

 

If you know a deaf-friendly business that deserves this recognition, take the first step and write a review about them here!
