We live in a world where unfair stereotypes do exist, the stereotype that Deaf people are less capable than hearing employees in the work environment plagues Deaf individuals seeking employment. Through various education and employment opportunities that have been created, eDeaf have been able to break the stereotype and show that Deaf candidates can do anything – except hear. The breaking of the stereotype stems from the question that forms the foundation that eDeaf was built on, “How can we help the Deaf to empower themselves?”
