How and why Open Inclusion is supporting Clusiv

Open Inclusion is supporting Clusiv to offer intentional, inclusive and high quality training programs for the blind community. 

By helping to connect Open Inclusion community members to intentional employment resources and trainings offered by Clusiv, this will help to further break down barriers in the employment landscape for people with disabilities to find more meaningful work.

Open Inclusion is a separate organization to Clusiv and is not responsible for the Clusiv platform or the program, which is run and delivered by Clusiv.
