The Diversity Policy in the National Federation of the Blind’s (NFB) Code of Conduct indicates that we celebrate and embrace diversity and full participation as core values in our mission to achieve equality, opportunity, and security for the blind. We are committed to building and maintaining a nationwide organization with state affiliates and local chapters that is unified in its priorities and programs and is directed by the membership.

The NFB is conducting a diversity and inclusion survey to learn more about member experiences in the organization. There is a difference in the definitions of diversity and inclusion. Diversity focuses on the people in the organization and considers their race, creed, color, religion, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, national origin, citizenship, marital status, age, genetic information, disability, or any other characteristic or intersectionality of characteristics. Inclusion focuses on the actual experiences members are having and whether they feel included and are able to participate in all areas of the organization.

This survey has questions about diversity and inclusion in seven categories. At the end of the survey, there is an optional and confidential questionnaire about you. We hope you will provide this information so that we can ensure our priorities are meeting the needs of our members.
