Deafness and Geosciences-Enhancing accessibility
Summary:
Equality, diversity and inclusion are now receiving much more attention and momentum than ever before, and in recent years there has been a real effort by universities to work on these issues. However, statistics show that the representation of disabled people in academia has not changed much since the 2010s. Now is the time for individuals, communities, institutions and agencies to turn momentum into action.

Deaf and hard of hearing people are no less capable of being geoscientists or working geoscience academics than hearing people. However, deaf and hard of hearing people are represented in lower proportions in these areas, contributing to the lack of diversity. Individuals with some form of hearing loss face stigma and misunderstandings, as well as questioning about their abilities, thus hindering their entry and advancement in the geosciences. This paper explores some of the barriers faced by deaf and hard of hearing students and scientists, the ways in which progress has been made to include people with hearing loss, and what more can be done.
