30% & Growing Blind Professionals Meetup

30% & Growing Blind Professionals Meetup

All students, customers, visitors and staff are required to wear a mask indoors in gatherings of 25 people or more, or if asked to do so in someone's personal space at all our sites.

Sep 21

Where: Lost & Found Beer Garden, 2040 Telegraph Ave., Oakland

September is upon us, yes, but that doesn’t mean we have to let go of summer—this is California, after all. Keep the dream alive and bring your working or job-seeking self to connect with your blind working friends and enjoy a seasonal menu of globally inspired street food and 20 taps pouring everything from traditional, blue-collar pints to barrel aged high gravity craft brews.

About 30% & Growing

It is often cited that 70% of working-age blind people do not work. Let’s turn that statistic right on its head and celebrate the 30% & Growing ranks of blind and visually impaired professionals. This is your night to join the LightHouse community of employed and aspiring workers-to-be! Connect with working blind peers and mentors, do some friendly networking or be a resource for others. Mark your calendars for the third Thursdays of each month and bring your thirst for networking (and beer).

To RSVP or for more information, contact Evening & Weekend Program Coordinator Serena Olsen at solsen@lighthouse-sf.org or 415-694-7316.
