Hello: On July 14, 2009, Senior Management of the Blind Center of Nevada in Las Vegas went to San Jose, California to attend a two-day event hosted by eBay and PayPal, along with the eBay Green Team and eBay Foundation.
Day One included Senior Management Teams from the Blind Center of Nevada at the eBay Cafe and the PayPal Campus Cafe showing adaptive technology, screen reader computer technology, and talking about the Computer/Electronic Recycling Event the next day. The Blind Center also met with eBay's Task Team on accessibility and showed the Engineers the adaptive technology that is used by visually impaired employees at the Blind Center.
On Day Two, there were two Computer/Electronic Recycling Events held from 8:00 am to 1:00 pm; one being held at the eBay campus and the other at the PayPal campus. The Blind Center collected over 8,000 pounds of electronic waste, which will be kept out of the Nevada landfills.
The Blind Center Management Team also toured the NOC (Network Operation Center) of eBay, and also PayPal. Management also met with the Vice President of Products and Strategies of eBay to share the Blind Center of Nevada's story as a Power Seller employing blind and visually impaired workers selling on eBay. The 2-day event was a great success!
Thank you again eBay and PayPay!
