Belgium - Discrimination at work

Brailleliga/Ligue Braille launches a new campaign about employment on September 21. The title of the campaign is: “Can you see my talents?” According to the 2019 annual report of Unia (Belgian center against discrimination), disability discrimination lists as the second most frequent cause of work floor discrimination.

This campaign has a double goal, first we want blind and visually impaired people to know that Brailleliga/Ligue Braille can help them with questions and problems concerning employment. Second we want to raise awareness about the capabilities of visually impaired people who received tailored guidance.

The specialized teams of Brailleliga/Ligue Braille help blind and visually impaired people to overcome all obstacles on their way to employment. Some examples are the prejudices, the mobility, the adaptation of the workplace and the insufficient knowledge of the disability. Thanks to their multidisciplinary approach and many years of experience, the specialized services of the Brailleliga/Ligue Braille are the right experts to guide blind and visually impaired people in their search for employment.
