Lost in last week’s Thanksgiving holiday shuffle were some noteworthy media appearances and mentions of AFB Consulting and AFB Staff experts. To recap:
Director of Research Dr. L. Penny Rosenblum authored an op-ed for Education Dive, a site that provides in-depth journalism and insight into the most impactful news and trends shaping K-12 education. “How COVID-19 is affecting students with visual impairments and their educators” provides Dr. Rosenblum’s insights on the Access and Engagement report, for which she was the lead researcher.
Online Tech outlet CNET interviewed Chief Program Officer Megan Aragon for an in-depth article about How blind engineers are fixing the online job hunt. The story is part of CNET’s "Tech for a Better World" series, which shares stories about the diverse teams creating products, apps and services to improve our lives and society. The “team” in this case was AFB Consulting, and how their work aims to enhance employment outcomes for blind and visually impaired jobseekers by working with companies to improve the accessibility of their digital platforms.
