Partial Sight and Blind Awareness

Friday, October 7, 2022

Webinar overview

Around 2 million people in the UK live with sight loss and every day 250 people begin to lose their sight. In line with National Braille Week (commencing Oct 7th) and World Sight Day (Oct 13th) we’d like to increase understanding and awareness of partial sight and blindness, and how to support those who have a form of sight loss or who are experiencing sight loss over time in our organisations.

What will you learn

  • An understanding of the variety and scale of sight loss
  • A look at the barriers that partially sighted or blind people face, especially in the workplace, including career progression
  • The benefits of hiring those with sight loss in your organisations
  • Top tips on how to make your workplace truly inclusive for people with sight loss

Who is this for?

  • Inclusion and Diversity managers
  • HR professionals
  • Change makers
  • Network leads
  • Staff looking to support colleagues with sight loss
