Disability Disclosure events

Do you have a health condition, specific learning difficulty (eg. Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, ADHD, or Autistic Spectrum condition) or disability? 

Are you unsure whether, when and how to disclose this to a prospective employer? 

Since there is no one-size-fits-all answer to these questions, come along to our interactive workshop to gain confidence in making this decision and presenting yourself to employers.

You will have the opportunity to:

  • Ask questions anonymously and consider your situation through the use of case studies
  • Consider the strengths you have to offer employers
  • Hear from an expert from EmployAbility with years of experience in supporting graduates to make this decision
  • Learn about disability-positive employers and support for transition to the workplace
  • Book follow up 1:1 appointments to discuss your individual situation 

Refreshments and buffet provided. 

To disclose or not disclose? Tuesday, 19 March, 5-7pm, Careers Service (5 Tyndall Avenue) as part of Equality and Diversity Week
