Transforming Systems to Achieve Equity for Deaf People
Full course description
Module Description: Transforming Systems to Achieve Equity for Deaf People is a one-hour self-paced module introducing systems theory as a framework for examining structural inequities that impact access to education and training opportunities for deaf people.

Upon the completion of this module, participants will be able to:
Identify the main components of systems transformation and their impacts

Use the NDC Site Assessment to review and analyze programs and services for deaf people within your institution, organization, or agency.
