Welcome to HI- ARO

HI-ARO is an informal group of ARO MWM attendees and ARO members with hearing loss. Three main goals are:

  • To learn more about accessibility services at MWM
  • To provide an informal vertical mentoring network
  • To organize the annual HI-ARO dinner usually on the first night of the MWM

HI-ARO began at the 1992 MWM with three deaf scientists and others over a case of beer. More recently in 2015, Tilak Ratnanather’s work with HI-ARO was recognized with a Presidential Award for Excellence in Science, Mathematics and Engineering Mentoring.
