Navigating PTSD & Other Mental Health Issues in the Workplace

To disclose or not to disclose mental health concerns with your employer (or future employer) - that is the question! While mental health advocacy is on the rise, it's still a fairly taboo topic within workplaces, especially during the hiring process. As a sufferer of PTSD herself, Candace Ramirez is here to answer your questions virtually, and teach you the tricks she's learned for advocating for yourself and not settling for roles where your mental health is compromised. MEET THE SPEAKER: Candace Ramirez lives right outside Seattle in Bellevue, WA and is a Content Creator at 1Password - a 100% remote company. As a former PowerToFly VIP, Candace found her current role after attending a virtual chat with Taylor Lane, Founder of Remote Like Me. Candace is a few years into her healing journey with PTSD, and in that time she's learned how to navigate job searching, disclosing to employers, and finding ways to thrive and advocate for herself at work. On the side, she's writing a guidebook for women with PTSD.

How To Manage A Remote Team & Thrive In A Remote-friendly Culture

Virtual teams are becoming the norm - which means the demand for remote managers is also on the rise. But what's the difference between managing in-person vs virtually? And how can one thrive in this new, virtual culture? Limor Bergman Gross manages a large remote team as the Director of Engineering at DigitalOcean, and is joining us for a live Q&A to help you become a better remote manager, and employee! MEET THE SPEAKER: Limor Bergman Gross is the Engineering Director for DigitalOcean. She was introduced to engineering in high school, and really loved the programming classes, especially the language, Pascal. After her military service she completed a bachelor’s degree in computer science and started working in her 3rd year - the rest is history. She actually did not find DigitalOcean, they found her. When she moved to the US from Israel, she had no connections, so she invested a lot of time and efforts in building her LinkedIn profile and connections. This payed off as both Digital Ocean and former employer, VMware, discovered her online!
