The Superdiversity Institute is running a workshop for NZSL users on developing online guidance for Government Departments.

About this event

The Superdiversity Institute is running a workshop for NZSL users on developing online guidance for government departments on the NZSL Act 2006 in Auckland on Tuesday 16 March.                                          

The NZSL Act sets out principles to guide government departments:

- The Deaf community should be consulted on matters relating to NZSL;

- NZSL should be used in the promotion of government services and provision of information; and

- Government services should be made accessible to the Deaf community, including through the use of NZSL.

The Office for Disability Issues has contracted the Superdiversity Institute to develop online guidance for government departments on what this means in practice.

We want to hear from NZSL users about best practice, issues and challenges in:

- Consultation processes;

- Using NZSL to promote government services;

- Using NZSL to make government information available.

- Making government services accessible to the Deaf community.

What has worked well? What hasn’t worked so well? What do Government Departments need to know about using NZSL and making their services accessible to the Deaf community?

Refreshments and a light lunch will be provided.
