World Blind Union Employment Survey, Deadline January 31, 2020

Hi GTT Blog Readers.  Please consider completing this WBU employment survey.  I’m providing a brief excerpt from their website followed by the link where you can learn more, and where you can actually access the survey itself.


Survey Deadline: January 31. 2020


Quoted text:

WBU has developed a short survey to identify employment patterns of people who are blind or partially sighted and of working-age throughout the world.


The WBU Employment Committee is undertaking this project to understand the levels of employment for individuals with sight loss. This research will provide up-to-date data on employment for people who are blind or have low vision (partial sight). Current employment information is old (more than 10 years old in most countries) and much of the information that is available is not specific to people who are blind or have low vision (partial sight). The information available also doesn’t provide details about the nature and type of employment or about barriers to employment that people with vision impairment face.

The purpose of this survey is to understand how WBU can best advocate for individuals who are blind or have partial sight. The survey designed for the WBU membership can be completed in 20-25 minutes and it is available in English, French, and Spanish.
