    Speaker: Denise Brodey, founder, Rebel Talent; Forbes Senior Contributor, DEI
    Date: Wednesday, April 12, 7 p.m.

    Presentation summary:

    To disclose or not to disclose? When students with a learning difference (LD) enter the workplace – whether internship, part-time job, or full-time career – they face the weighty decision of whether to disclose their LD to their employer. Denise Brodey, founder of Rebel Talent and senior contributor to Forbes will discuss the how, when, and why of making that decision. The work world has changed dramatically in the last decade—even in the last two years—making life more complicated but also, in some ways, easier for people to disclose their learning disabilities and attention challenges. Brodey’s talk will cover her own personal experiences as well as others and help put those changes in context.

    Attendees will also gain a deeper understanding of how to create a psychologically safe, supported, and enjoyable environment for employees with learning differences such as ADHD. Throughout her talk, Brodey, a longtime journalist with a sense of humor that she says is one of the secrets to her success, will weave her own lived experience into the discussion as well as those of students and others she has interviewed. An audience Q&A will follow Brodey’s talk.

    Speaker: John Elder Robison, bestselling author and Advisor to the LC Center for Neurodiversity
    Date: Wednesday, May 3, 7 p.m. 

    This talk will address the socio-historical factors that led to neurodivergent people being classified as disordered, and why that might or might not be accurate. He will also make the case that these individuals have played a key role in the advance of civilization, and how adopting a mindset that embraces neurodiversity benefits all of humanity. He will share some of his own experiences as a proud, neurodiverse individual.

    John Elder Robison is a New York Times bestselling author, entrepreneur, and advocate for autistic people. He is the author of several books on autism spectrum disorder, including Switched On: A Memoir of Brain Change and Emotional Awakening, and Look Me in the Eye: My Life with Asperger’s.
