Friendly Employment Award for Inclusive Organisation Award in 2017-18

The Centre for Sign Linguistics and Deaf Studies (CSLDS) of The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) has been actively involved in employing deaf people in Hong Kong since its establishment in 2003. Recently, CSLDS joined the Talent-Wise Employment Charter and Inclusive Organisations Recognition Scheme (Charter Scheme) and last week it received the ‘Friendly Employment Award’ from the Labour and Welfare Bureau.

Prof. Gladys Tang, Director of CSLDS and Professor of the Department of Linguistics and Modern Language at CUHK, remarked, “Despite the limited educational and work opportunities in the past, given appropriate training, deaf employees can be as productive as hearing employees, and prove themselves to be indispensable collaborators in work and research.”
