Why We Exist

Envision, Inc. is dedicated to improving the lives of people who are blind or visually impaired by providing inspiration and opportunity to them. This passion led to the creation of the William L. Hudson BVI Workforce Innovation Center. The naming of the center honors the ongoing legacy of William L. Hudson, CEO of the Durham, N.C.-based LCI, an icon who has been at the center of creating national employment opportunities for people with vision loss for more than 50 years.

As one of the largest employers of people who are blind or visually impaired in the country, Envision is in the unique position to address inadequacies in workforce development, remove barriers to entry and drive employment innovation. Thus, creating a workforce for all people with all abilities.

The landscape of employment is changing. Professional, white-collar jobs are the future as young professionals are looking for jobs in technology, IT, HR, communications, sales and finance. Lack of accommodation and accessibility in the workplace has created a rift between the demand for such jobs and the availability of those opportunities. We are positioned to grow and develop the workforce of tomorrow.


We desire to become the thought leader and catalyst for change through workforce innovation and inclusion for people who are blind or visually impaired. Through the development and implementation of upward mobility opportunities we will create an environment of self-sufficiency and inspiration for those we serve.


Our goal is to provide progressive career opportunities and create jobs for the blind or visually impaired. We will achieve this through experiential training programs, empowerment of those we serve and the provision of advocacy at both the state and federal level. We dedicate our efforts to the development and delivery of a well-trained, skilled and competitive workforce in the global marketplace.
