2020 has seen a complete restructure of how society conducts its business. For many organisations, this has meant learning to adapt to rapid change. It has also seen some unexpectedly positive outcomes. Particularly for working individuals with vision impairment.
Whilst the Australian education system has vastly improved how it integrates and supports those with vision impairment, what happens when schooling ends and a new journey in the workforce begins? How do workplaces support and develop people with vision impairment that moves beyond simply satisfying their diversity charter?
We have gathered together a panel of individuals with lived experience to discuss how working with a vision impairment has equipped them with the tools to adapt, drive productivity and prove that working alternatively is both impactful and here to stay.
