Blind in Business event

09 Jul 2007

Blind in Business event Next month, Blind in Business will be holding an employment event specifically aimed at visually impaired undergraduates and graduates.

On August 23rd and 24th, the annual Education to Employment diversity event will take place at the SHL Management Centre in Long Ditton.

Students and graduates will be able to get involved in job coaching and recruitment seminars, as well as life coaching provided by Blind in Business Specialists.

As reported by Onrec.com, Michael Kenny, director of Blind in Business, said: "Fear rules visually impaired graduates when they look for work.

"They wonder if they will be successful, or whether they will be discriminated against because of their disability.

"Fear and uncertainty also lurks in the minds of most employers without experience of visual impairment.

"This event quells that fear by bringing employer and visually impaired graduates together, so they see that they are not so strange, or scary - that employers are committed to diversity, and that disabled graduates make up significant parts of the graduate talent pool."

Graduate recruiters attending the event include those from HSBC, law firms Herbert Smith and Clifford Chance, Transport for London and Cadbury Schweppes.
