Every Deaf Awareness Week we see momentum growing from industry to industry and this year we have been delighted to start working with Williams Racing.
Williams is one of the world’s leading Formula 1 teams with a wealth of diverse and driven team members who are working towards the same goal.
terptree were engaged to deliver Deaf Awareness training and build Deaf Awareness into their business.
All areas of the deaf employee and deaf customer experience were considered including the Williams team, conference centre, race and fanbase.
Very quickly after the Deaf Awareness Training was delivered, Williams were keen to provide further training to its staff.
During Deaf Awareness Week was the perfect time to work with Williams again to offer the wider team a chance to learn some British Sign Language through their Learn and Lunch training series.
This session shared information about Deaf people in society and then covered the fingerspelling alphabet and a number of industry related signs.
It has been clear from the outset that Williams Racing is committed to making their business more accessible for both deaf employees and customers and we look forward to seeing where this journey takes them next.
Any questions - as always we are here to help!
