A sign of the times

Over the years, Boeing has made great strides with its Deaf employees. The company’s Everett, Wash., factory has evolved into providing contracted sign language interpreters and is working on a pilot program to bring a full-time interpreter to the Everett site.

Now, Boeing’s work with its Deaf employees has caught the attention of DeafNation, a leading source for news and social networking in the deaf and hard-of-hearing community.

“[I’m] seeing more and more upper managers incorporate Deaf people into their work environment. I mean, it’s really amazing to see people work their way up and have that opportunity,” said Joel Barish, CEO of DeafNation.
