Celebrating Disability Action Week

Open up opportunity!

Disability Action Week is about celebrating work diversity and opening up opportunity.

Joining a workforce and being able to use your talents is an opportunity that all of us should have, regardless of our abilities.

At Guide Dogs we often hear from clients about the challenges they face when entering, or re-entering, the workforce with low vision or blindness. These challenges are very real.

The good news is there are many who have gone before and overcome these challenges.

Guide Dogs Queensland and Blind Citizens Australia have joined forces to create this webinar – Open up Opportunity – to share how to overcome these challenges.

About the webinar

Keynote speaker from Blind Citizens Australia, Madison Braim, discusses how to overcome the challenges to employment.

She also shares helpful resources and practical tips, such as creating a standout resume.
