The Carroll Society Awards

Each year, The Carroll Center for the Blind and the Massachusetts Commission for the Blind recognize outstanding employees who are visually impaired through the annual Carroll Society Awards Ceremony. The Carroll Society Awards recognize blind and visually impaired employees who have made significant contributions to their companies by their outstanding ability and job performance. Individuals are chosen because, despite vision loss, they are exemplary employees and contribute to the overall culture of both their business and community.

These awards serve as a platform to raise awareness about the importance of having an inclusive work environment. By emphasizing the competence, achievement and job diversity of the award winners, the campaign conveys a positive impression on the attitudinal barriers that often confront persons who are blind or visually impaired seeking employment or job advancement.

Who do you know who deserves to be nominated this year? If you know of a blind or visually impaired person who demonstrates the highest degree of excellence as an employee or is successfully self-employed, we invite you to nominate him/her to be recognized through the Carroll Society Awards.


Please use the following nomination guidelines when considering a nomination.
Note: Employees of The Carroll Center for the Blind or the Massachusetts Commission for the Blind are not eligible for nomination.
