DonGroup of co-workers gathered around a table.‘t let your vision loss be the first thing that comes to mind when your new co-workers think of you! Success on the job and the rewards of being part of a team are dependent on more than your education and qualifications. Before you start that new job, plan your approach to ensure your new boss and co-workers perceive you as the capable and independent person you know you are. Sarah Bennett, MA, CRC, LPC, CPRW, vocational rehabilitation consultant from Independent Rehabilitation Services, Inc., and Polly Abbot, CVRT at Second Sense, lead this discussion of what you can do to have your co-workers see you as a capable and dependable member of the team.

Discussion topics include:

  • extra considerations for workers with vision loss,
  • workplace culture and job etiquette, and
  • hazards and pitfalls for someone with vision loss.
