Creating a Better, Brighter Community for the Blind and Visually Impaired

Through partnerships, thought leadership, and engagement, Industries for the Blind and Visually Impaired (IBVI) transcends “business” by redefining “community.” Through our partnerships, we are able to create a progressive environment for the blind and visually impaired. And many of our partners look to IBVI as the real-world testing ground for new technologies used in manufacturing and office professions.

Our Partners

eSight

Through our partnership with eSight, we’re working towards the realization of a technology that will bring about a true shift in our community: a wearable assistive device that allows the visually impaired to see.

Vision Forward

Vision Forward empowers visually impaired individuals and their families by offering education about vision loss, as well as the support system and resources that are available to them. IBVI has become an integral part of that support system by providing blind professionals with the opportunity to grow and develop life skills through meaningful employment.

Milwaukee County

We have partnered with Milwaukee County Transit System (MCTS) to provide safe, efficient transportation for IBVI employees. Thanks to an on-site bus shelter and programs like the Go! Pass, many of IBVIs visually impaired employees can ride to work independently and confidently.

Tips For Interviewing as a Blind and Visually Impaired Candidate

Market conditions currently favor those who are actively looking for work—sign-on bonuses, incentives, and increasing wages are becoming standard in employers’ attempts to fill vacant positions. And while they might not be fully equitable for visually impaired individuals (only 30 percent of the visually impaired population are employed according to the April jobs report from the Bureau of Labor of Statistics), it’s best to prepare and equip yourself with the skills to tackle an in-person, phone, or virtual interview when the time comes.
