Join ExploreVR for Engaging Businesses from a Blindness Perspective: New Jersey's Development of a Business Relations Unit

Explore VR offers vocational rehabilitation (VR) agencies easy and convenient access to a range of VR research, related data, and tools for planning, evaluation, and decision-making.
Over the past 2 years, with assistance from the JD-VRTAC, the New Jersey Commission for the Blind and Visually Impaired (CBVI) has developed a Business Relations Unit (BRU) dedicated to engaging and serving business as a primary customer, coordinating and providing trainings and technical assistance, organizing targeted hiring events, and facilitating a talent pipeline from one of NJ's untapped talent pools. In addition to this goal, CBVI is focused on implementing strategic training initiatives on the use of LMI as a counseling tool by VR counselors to facilitate greater informed choice by CBVI consumers.
In this webinar, Amanda Gerson from CBVI will discuss the goals of the project, lessons learned, and the successes of participation in the JD-VRTAC Learning Collaborative.
