Event Type
Career and Employment

This group aims to provide a place for those seeking employment or already employed to share skills, learn, network, and unite to support every individual within the sight loss community in achieving their employment goals, both practically and emotionally.

People who are interested in joining this group should fall within one of the below categories:

  • Seeking new employment
  • Employed, but looking to advance their career
  • Employed, but seeking to give back to the community with lessons learned or expanding your personal network
  • Interested in developing hard or soft skills to prepare for advancing your career
  • Have a strong desire to start or restart your career
  • Considering or pursuing formal/informal education (with eventual employment aspirations)
  • Currently an entrepreneur or seeking to be an entrepreneur

This group is intended as a goal oriented, skills-based support group. The primary purpose of this group is not simply for social interaction, there are many other groups within CNIB where that is available. The group will be structured in a way to prevent creating a negative environment where everyone just comes to vent, individuals will be expected to contribute in a positive manner as well as sharing issues.

This workshop meets via Zoom web conference on the last Saturday of every month from 1 to 2:30 p.m. Mountain Time. Call in information will be given upon registration.
