For women with chronic illnesses of any kind, life in the professional realm can be difficult to navigate. To whom do we disclose our illness? And to what extent? What about getting ADA protection?  What about the special challenges of an invisible condition, such as mental illness? This workshop will include the speaker's personal experiences, as well as an open discussion among the participants sharing tips and strategies. No one is forced to share any personal information, speak from your heart only if you wish to.
