Inclusivity icon

Inclusivity

As people who are blind or visually impaired, we understand the experiences of being part of a minority group that at times faces adversity or discrimination. Therefore, we are committed to actively seeking and welcoming diverse people, experiences and perspectives and to foster inclusivity. Practicing inclusivity creates opportunities for greater innovation, sustainability and mission-focused, responsive and person-centered programs and services.

Respect icon

uncompromising respect

We uphold the dignity and worth of all individuals and groups in how we treat each other, even in times of disagreement or conflict. We acknowledge and affirm all people traveling with us on this life journey of blindness or visual impairment, including those facing rapidly changing vision. We recognize that each individual and family must take their own path on this journey in an atmosphere of genuine support and compassion, allowing for constructive feedback, growth-centered risk-taking and creativity.

Integrity icon

Integrity

We practice unfailing integrity in all individual and organizational actions to steward the Council’s precious human, financial and capital resources. Our goal is to say what we do and do what we say, both within the organization and outside of it, which we exemplify by the highest standards of ethics, honesty and trustworthiness as we live our mission.
