to the Signs of Success web site. During the
past decades, there has been a rapid increase of Deaf individuals
entering the public and private sectors in managerial positions.
These positions often serve as training grounds for future
opportunities to form one's own business or career in management.
of Success has arbitrarily selected ten Deaf individuals
who are judged successful by their peers. These role models
serve as inspiration for young Deaf individuals who may be
considering business management as a career choice. It is
never too early to begin thinking of what opportunities are
available for Deaf individuals.
We are also grateful to the Merrill Lynch Foundation and Gallaudet
University for making the project possible. It is my hope,
that this project will contribute toward making the world
a better place for Deaf persons to live in. Sincere appreciation
is extended to all who consented to be involved in this project.
