EYES ON THE ROAD
Transportation can be a major headache for the blind and visually impaired community. Once a job is found, transit becomes a routine that BVI employees must negotiate on a daily basis. Even before that, however, candidates have to find a way to get to and from interviews – which can be very difficult. BIT has partnered with Uber to help you address this barrier to finding work, completely free of charge! Contact us today for details.
The Blind Institute of Technology™ (BIT) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that strives to reduce the excessively high unemployment rate among the blind and visually impaired (BVI) community in America.
Led by Executive Director Mike Hess, BIT aims to help solve this unemployment and diversity and inclusion epidemic by educating employers about the advantages of working with talented and skilled BVI individuals, and through professional certification and training, inclusive technology and other programs. Mike left an 18-year career in IT to found BIT in 2013.
