AHEAD – Disability, Disclosure and Looking for Work

This workshop will help you get thinking about disclosing your disability at work. By using self-reflective questions and some advice from us at AHEAD, you’ll gain the tools to have a confident and positive conversation with your employer about accommodations and supports. You should leave this webinar with a better understanding of the legislation in place around disability in the workplace as well as a plan of what, why, how, when and who you will disclose to. We will also explore the WAM programme and how it works and opportunities we have with our employers.
