Scott Blanks

Senior Director, Programs, Lighthouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired

Scott Blanks is the Senior Director of Programs at LightHouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired, championing independence for the blind through innovative educational training programs and by promoting accessibility and universal design. He has worked with big tech, transit agencies, and software development firms to instill the importance of human-centered design into every project.

Prior to his time at LightHouse, Scott worked for more than a dozen years as an Access Technology Specialist and Braille instructor, witnessing the influence of a rapidly changing technological world upon blind and visually impaired children and adults. Through this extensive, human-to-human involvement, Scott recognized the critical need for smart, inclusive design, where blind people are part of the design process from day one.
