Network of Ph.Ds Who Are Blind or Low Vision
The Network of Ph.Ds Who Are Blind or Low Vision is an open Facebook group is for anyone who is planning to pursue, currently pursuing, or who already has obtained a Ph.D in any field, and who happens to also be blind or low vision. We welcome both those working in academia and those working in other areas (industry, etc).
Please feel free to tell others who may be interested in joining!
The purpose of this group is to provide a venue to share resources and strategies, and to ask questions related to obtaining a Ph.D (and working after obtaining a Ph.D) that may be particularly relevant to individuals who are blind or who have low vision (e.g. accessible data analysis software, accessing academic material, navigating conferences, obtaining employment etc).
Please feel free to use this group as a helpful resource and to spread the word!
