Diversity & Inclusion: We are CNIB
The communities we serve are diverse and rich in culture and history. There are many factors that overlap with one’s sight loss journey. How these factors work together to form a person’s lived experience is essential in shaping their identity. Here, we will explore the many faces and facets of intersectionality with being blind, partially sighted or Deafblind. By learning, and sharing our personal experiences and growth, we are changing the perception of what it means to have sight loss. Through the panel discussions, podcasts and interviews found on this page, hear from our participants about their experiences.
