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. 

Time: 6.30 pm - 9.00 pm

Timing on the night:

6.30 pm: Doors open, refreshments served

7.00 pm: Individual presentations by panel members 

8.00 pm: Question and answer session

8.30 pm: Socialising/networking over tea & coffee

9.00 pm: Event concludes.

Who should attend: This event is suitable for Aspergers Vic members and families, professionals, or anyone else interested in this topic. Suitable age: teenagers and upwards. 

Cost: $30 Aspergers Vic Members, $45 Non-Members

Location: Bayview Eden Hotel, 6 Queens Rd, Melbourne Vic 3004

Special Guests:  To be confirmed, but we aim to have a panel from our community with:

  • A well-known psychologist who works with Aspergers individuals, 

  • Two women and two men with lived experience of having worked and faced the disclosure decision at work.  

Getting There:
  • If driving: Plenty of free parking will be available in the underground carpark at the hotel. The gate will be open from 1.30pm, or press the buzzer for entry. 
  • On public transport:  Take the train to Flinder St, then take a tram down St Kilda Rd to Toorak Rd stop 22 (e.g Route 16 St Kilda Beach). Walk 350m south on St Kilda Rd towards Kings Way/Toorak Rd. Or take train to Sth Yarra station and take a West Coburg tram to Toorak Rd/St Kilda Rd then walk 350m to the venue.
