Thibault Trancart (BCom'15), Desautels Faculty of Management's first blind graduate, is helping make one of the world’s biggest consumer goods companies more accessible. Trancart is a Manager in Responsible Beauty for Europe Hair Care at Procter & Gamble, and has become one of its Accessibility Champions. “Originally, I didn’t want to be the blind guy working on accessibility,” he says. But Trancart, intrigued by the practicality of the work, now addresses the challenges he personally faces. “I’m 80-90% on accessibility and can’t see myself doing anything else.”
In 2021, Trancart also launched his own motivational speaker platform, No Blink, aimed at inspiring audiences and raising awareness about visual impairments.
