Let's talk about disability in the archives. This session explores issues related to working with a disability or managing employees who may require accommodations due to disability. Lightning talk presentations are followed by small group conversations, creating a forum for speakers and attendees to discuss professional development, accommodations, disclosure, and other issues. Participants should leave feeling empowered to tackle tough conversations and to advocate for themselves and coworkers.
