A recent study by Cornell University's Employment and Disability Institute found that only 24 percent of working-age Americans with visual impairments had full-time jobs. News 25 sat down with a blind attorney and his employer to discuss the reason behind that disconnect. Kendrick Kennedy, an attorney with Conway & Martin, says, "The visual impairment, the blindness is an issue. They don't know how I'm going to do the job, and that's a lot of employers' fears." Warren Conway, Kennedy’s employer, says, "Employers are ignorant about the abilities of blind people or visually impaired people and unfortunately, sometimes you just don't know what you don't know, and when you don't know, you don't make any efforts to cure your ignorance about those things that you don't know." Kennedy also says, "I'm not going to let society put limitations on me. I set my own limitations." Kennedy is also the president of the Gulf Coast chapter of the National Federation of the Blind, a resource for local residents with visual impairments.
