The World Health Organization released a landmark report on vision in 2019. It’s estimated that 2.2 billion people in the world have a vision impairment and of that, nearly half are preventable cases to some degree. As with many disabilities, visual impairment impacts low income individuals, those who live in rural areas, ethnic minorities and persons with other disabilities to a more significant degree.  Much of this disparity along socioeconomic and ethnic lines are highly correlated to the conditions typically associated with poverty and lack of access to quality, consistent healthcare. The spectrum of blindness and low vision is vast and each contains unique circumstances, but there are relatable issues on the whole that are universal.  Our systems are built upon an assumption that all senses will develop equally and wholly. But those in the blind and low vision community are presented with the challenges that stem from this assumption and it affects everything from social development to employment opportunities throughout their lifetimes. In an era of heightened awareness around disabilities, equity and empowerment, one company is driving positive change through technology in a simple, and rather beautiful way. It’s called Be My Eyes.  Be My Eyes is an app that connects blind and low-vision individuals with sighted volunteers and companies from all over the world through a live video call. The app allows these volunteers to assist blind and low vision users providing a sense of purpose for the volunteers, and a pragmatic and empowering solution to the users themselves. Companies such as Google, Microsoft and Procter & Gamble have created unique programs to utilize Be My Eyes to assist their users and more companies are signing on rapidly. In this episode we explore the technology, the use cases, and powerful human AND corporate benefits of the app by speaking with the VP of Community at Be My Eyes, Will Butler. -- Show Notes: Be My Eyes Be My Eyes Podcast 13 Letters Podcast Be My Eyes App: Google, iOS If you enjoyed this podcast, please subscribe, share with your friends and rate and review on Apple Podcasts and Podchaser.

Social change doesn’t happen in a vacuum. The parts we can see—people in the streets, wall-to-wall media coverage, perhaps even landmark legislation - can sometimes feel abrupt. But these visual cues are like the erupting volcano. Before it explodes, it may simmer for decades, building pressure and moving slowly through pockets of the earth before finally erupting.  Along the way there are champions of change who often toil behind the scenes and push the flywheel of change until it gathers momentum and eventually moves on its own. One such person is Susan McPherson.  Susan McPherson is the founder and CEO of McPherson strategies, a consulting and communications firm that advises organizations on sustainability, corporate responsibility and empowerment. Her client roster is a who’s who of household name corporations, NGOs and passion projects that are near and dear to her heart.  Looking to start a social initiative in your organization but not sure how or when? Better call Susan. Worried that your efforts will seem inauthentic and performative? Better call Susan. Interested in partnering with another organization to bring your sustainable vision to life? You know who to call. You can find Susan McPherson on Twitter, LinkedIn and on her website. -- If you enjoyed this podcast, please subscribe, share with your friends and rate and review on Apple Podcasts and Podchaser.
