HLAA Virtual Meeting: Employment Strategies for People with Hearing Loss
Presented by: HLAA District of Columbia Chapter
Speakers: Lisa Yuan and Ken Cluskey

Finding and maintaining a job with hearing loss can be challenging, and for many, those challenges have likely been magnified during the pandemic. In this program, Ken Cluskey and Lisa Yuan will share experiences and strategies they have developed over 30 years in both the public and private sectors on searching for a job, obtaining employment and achieving success once employed. The program will include tips and resources related to the specific challenges that people with hearing loss may face as they navigate their careers.

Young adults with hearing loss are encouraged to attend. Zina Jawadi, a young adult herself with hearing loss, is a member of the HLAA Board of Directors. She will talk about the HLAA Young Adult Hears Committee and their initiatives that they hope to address for young adults with hearing loss.

Lisa Yuan and Ken Cluskey are recent newlyweds and live in Washington, D.C. Both Lisa and Ken began losing their hearing as young adults. They each wear one cochlear implant and one hearing aid.
