Working Age Forum - April 25th 2023

10 Going

Everything is set up for the 13th Working Age Forum (WAF), so if you would like to register and participate in the conversation, read on. The forum is organised by Breandan Ward in collaboration with NCBI’s Employment, Training and Academia team. It is a place where people of working age in Ireland who are blind or vision impaired can meet, network, organise and learn from each other. On this occasion, the guest speaker will be an artist, coach and trainer Lynn Cox.

What is WAF?

The Working Age Forum is a member-led network which meets online via Teams. It serves to connect people who are blind and visually impaired with each other to offer and benefit from peer support. Regardless of what stage of employment you are in (whether finding your first job, already working, looking to re-join the workforce after some time out, or retired), you are welcome to join our online sessions which are held on the last Tuesday of every second month and are free of charge.

When is the next meeting?

Our next meeting will be held on Tuesday, April 25th, from 6:00 PM to 7:15 PM. We will meet online, via Teams.

What is the topic of discussion?

On this occasion, we will be joined by Lynn Cox, an artist, coach and trainer based in England. Lynn will talk about her experience of sight loss and her work delivering inspirational talks, goal-setting and coaching sessions, and multisensory art workshops. Lynn has a wealth of expertise working with people in different sectors and countries, and we look forward to learning from her experience. As usual, we will have a chance to connect with each other in smaller breakout groups before the guest speaker interview.
