Each October, National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) celebrates America's workers with disabilities and reminds employers of the importance of inclusive hiring practices. Join Dr. Jana Burke who will be talking about the potentially overwhelming process of sharing disability-related information with a prospective or current employer. The decision-making process requires answering several personal questions that may be different with each employment experience. There is no single right or wrong approach to disclosing a disability. How can you encourage employees with disabilities to disclose their disability without being pressured?
