Diversify Your Team
One of our top priorities is creating meaningful employment opportunities for people who are blind or visually impaired. The unemployment rate for people who are blind or visually impaired is at a staggeringly high 70 percent. A job is essential and life-changing in so many ways for someone who is blind or visually impaired. And we all stand to benefit from a more diverse and talented workforce.
We are often asked “How can I help?” If you’re an employer, one of the most tangible ways you can help is by creating much-needed jobs for Hoosiers who are blind or visually impaired. Let’s change the conversation from disability to ability by focusing on what people who are blind or visually impaired can offer your business.
You might have hesitations, concerns or questions. We’re here to help. We provide coaching and consultation through the process of finding, hiring and employing a person who is blind or visually impaired. We can also recommend talented, job-ready candidates from our own network and training programs.
