The Blind Institute of Technology is proud to announce that our Founder and Executive Director, Mike Hess has been appointed for the Denver Commission for People with Disabilities.
The mission of the Denver Commission for People with Disabilities is to promote and enhance equality for people with disabilities through empowerment, advocacy and education by working with community members, and City and County of Denver officials and employees who have the ability to affect change.
Hess’ mission, to prepare blind and visually impaired (BVI) people with IT and other technical skills and the employers who hire them for success in the workplace aligns perfectly with their cause.
BIT could not be more excited to work with the city of Denver, one of America’s most accessible cities, and make it an even better place for people with disabilities.
