Employers' Diversity and Inclusion Training Video!

The link to the video below is "Blind Sided," a 14-minute training film developed for employers' diversity and inclusion programs, uses a light and sometimes humorous approach to address three topic areas--blind stereotypes and myths, inclusion in the workplace, and suggestions for quality customer service to customers who are blind or have low vision.

July

  • July Healthy Recipe: July Fruit Pizza!
  • July is Fireworks Safety Month. See the National Council on Fireworks Safety. Using consumer fireworks on our Nation's birthday is as traditional as cookouts and parades. And it is equally safe if a few common sense rules are followed, says Nancy Blogin, President of the National Council of Fireworks Safety.
