Inaugural Sign@State Symposium

Join the U.S. Department of State as it celebrates National Deaf History Month with our inaugural Sign@State Symposium.

The Department of State recognizes that diversity and representation are key to achieving U.S. foreign policy objectives. Like the minorities that make up America, American Sign Language (ASL) users – and users of other signed languages – are not only welcome in the Department of State, but also critical to advancing American diplomacy around the world.

Speakers will highlight the experiences and contributions of Deaf and hard of hearing employees as well how individuals can have rewarding Foreign and Civil Service careers. ASL interpretation and captioning will be available for the Sign@State Symposium.
