Talk Less Sign More with Nick Jeudy-Lamour
About this event
Working remotely has forced many employees to feel disconnected from their coworkers. Talk Less Sign More is a team-building workshop on communication, intuition, mutual aid, and interaction with others. Your team will dive into an ASL-inspired teaching, learn some basic signs, and play fun games to test your knowledge! The language offers a sense of transparency that will help your team take a step out of their comfort zone, better understand each other, and develop an awareness of the Deaf community! Inclusivity has never been more important, so now more than ever should your team be learning how to communicate outside of a spoken language.
In this one hour session, your team will learn common words, phrases, and even the alphabet through quick and fun games tailored to teaching people with zero sign language experience to start to understand the simplicity of learning ASL. Also expect to learn to say your company name and any other team related terms you are interested in!
What to bring:
For this event, your team will need to bring a pen and paper, a scarf or bandana, and a hat! When you join the meeting enter your first name, favorite color, and emoticon (example: Nick, Electric Blue, excited) in the name section.
