Disclosing Your Disability at Work

Destigmatized: Visible and invisible Disabilities and Neurodivergence

Description: Working while living with a chronic illness or disability is no easy feat. For those of us who need accommodations from our employers in order to do our jobs, it’s crucial that we know our rights and have a strong understanding of how to disclose and ask for support. That’s why Hannah Olson co-founded Disclo, the first software helping employees safely ask for, verify, and act on accommodation requests at work. In this talk, Hannah will explain the pros and cons of disclosure, how one might disclose, and how Disclo may be able to help.
