Career Conversations is back with a special edition episode all about if, when, where, and how to disclose your disability.
Featuring Relationship Manager Karen Kelsey from Lime Connect, a non-profit that is leading companies to understand and value the talents and strengths of employees with disabilities. Karen talks about how to handle what can be a sensitive, personal and often stigmatized subject with ease.
