Karyn Page, Envision VP of Innovation, met with Wendy Doyle, United WE President and CEO, to talk about how Karyn got to the role and position she is currently at with Envision. To explain her role at Envision to Wendy, Karyn simplified it into two categories; preparing employees who are blind or visually impaired for professional careers and preparing employers to receive those talents. They discuss how Karyn chooses what platforms are important to fight for on behalf of the majority of individuals.

To end their conversation, Wendy asks Karyn how she reccomends creating a more inclusive workplace. She said the first step is gaining awareness, after you are aware of the situation, it moves you forward into the next step. That next step is creating opportunities for experience in a safe space that elevates our awareness, which leads into active steps to an inclusive workspace. The main goal of creating an inclusive workspace and the future of work is to create a space of belonging where we can all thrive. As Karyn says, "we are all humans first and it is most important that we as humans are aware and empathetic."
