Blind in Business virtual event for vision impaired University students in Wales

Blind in Business is inviting University students and graduates in Wales to find out more about how the organisation can help them at a virtual event (via Zoom) on Monday 30th May from 1 pm to 2 pm.

It is an event aimed at vision impaired students and graduates which will introduce them to Blind in Business's charitable services, which include workshops and one to one sessions. There will also be a debate with the students on whether it is easier or harder to find a job with a disability, ultimately getting them to think about the barriers that exist for visually impaired students when transitioning into employment and also how such barriers can be overcome.

For more information, please contact: You can also find out more about Blind in Business on their website.
