Recognizing opportunities to hire persons with a disability such as blindness creates a diverse workforce and a culture of inclusion. Utilizing the correct technology and establishing paths for effective communication can create a successful work environment for people living with blindness and major vision loss.
"Shedding light on the importance of diversity and inclusiveness in any workplace or organization is a powerful message. I am honored to serve on the panel for this inspiring discussion,"
said Dotty St. Amand, Chief Executive Officer.
