The experience of the deaf in a hearing-majority workplace is filled with frustration, secondhand information and the annoyance of always being "the last to know." In 2007, Workplace Education Manitoba published the curriculum developed through a workplace essential skills project conducted at partner Boeing Canada Technology Ltd. in Winnipeg. Using computer training coursework as the essential skills delivery vehicle, materials were specifically designed to help level the playing field and to make equality more of a reality for deaf workers.
