Your Donation Makes A Difference
BIT strives to reduce the excessively high unemployment among the blind and visually impaired community by educating employers about the advantages of working with the visually impaired, improving accessible technology capabilities within the workplace, increasing access to professional training and certification programs, and by partnering with employers to create access to meaningful employment opportunities. BIT has gained tremendous momentum in its short existence since 2013. We are successfully placing educated, skilled, and qualified professionals who are blind and visually impaired into the workforce, and taking the anxiety out of diversity and inclusion initiatives in the workplace.
Your donation will help a blind or visually impaired adult obtain gainful employment, allowing them to contribute their unique gifts to the workplace and maintain self-sufficiency.
