To Disclose, or Not To Disclose: Asking for Accommodations in the Workplace

To Disclose, or Not To Disclose: Asking for Accommodations in the Workplace

April 1, 2019 - 2:00pm to 3:00pm
Chestnut Hill College, St. Joseph Hall, East Parlor

College students with disabilities are often faced with the choice of whether or not to disclose their disability. In many cases, disclosing your disability can provide you with accommodations that could create access for you in order to enhance your success in the college environment. Once you graduate, you will be faced with another choice of whether or  not to disclose to an employer. You may wander, “Should I, or shouldn’t I disclose my disability to my employer?” This is a complex question to answer. 

Please join us on April 1, from 2pm-3pm in the East Parlor of St. Joseph Hall for resources and advice on disclosing a disability in the workplace.

We will have a panel to discuss their experience with disclosing a disability in the workplace.

The panel includes:
    - A representative from SAP
    - Current Doctoral Student: Melissa Travostino, M.A., M.S.
    - Director of the Tichenor-Greer Scholars Program: Jody Markley, M.Ed.
