Disclosure at Work: Dilemmas and Positives
Please join our community to celebrate International Aspergers Day! Following our successful community celebrations of the last few years, AV continues its celebration of the strengths of Aspergers in life and employment. This is an opportunity to celebrate our strengths together as a community.
The topic for this year's International Aspergers Day celebration is disclosure which is a common issue and discussion topic across our community, with a variety of views and approaches. Disclosing Aspergers in the workplace is an individual decision. Some people may be open about it, while others may not for a range of reasons, including fear of discrimination or being treated differently.
Join us for a panel discussion with those with lived experience and a professional supporting our community to explore this often challenging topic. Our Panel will involve attendee questions and discussion for the final part of the event.
