World Blind Union looking for next Chief Executive Officer


The World Blind Union (WBU) is the global organization representing the estimated 285 million people worldwide who are blind or partially sighted. CNIB is a proud member of WBU.

At last year's WBU General Assembly in Orlando, WBU CEO Dr. Penny Hartin announced that she will be retiring from her position this year. We commend Dr. Hartin on her many contributions to changing what it is to be blind around the world.

The WBU is seeking a qualified and passionate candidate to become their next CEO, and we want to help spread the word.

This position is open to all applicants but people living with blindness or partial sight are strongly encouraged to apply. The application deadline is August 1, 2017.
