The Blind Leaders Development Program Advisory Panel was established to ensure the offerings of the program created real value for participants, mentors and those they lead, and addressed the needs of employers and the blindness field. The panel was composed of one AFB staff member and six leaders who were blind or visually impaired, from the corporate, government, and non-profit sectors.

Advisory Panel Activities

Panel members volunteered their valuable time and expertise to:

  • Determine program content (e.g., webinar topics)
  • Establish program selection criteria
  • Review applications and select program participants and mentors
