A facilitated discussion on our experiences, the factors that go into making decisions around who, when and how to share.

6:35pm - Introduction by Eric Heath
6:45pm - Group Discussion
8:00pm - Close
Disclosing neurodivergence in a professional setting may facilitate positive adaptations but also be associated with negative stigma. Neurodivergent people may feel pressured to disclose even when it's against their interests.
The discussion will focus on the experiences of those in that situation and considerations around disclosure, including the factors either way which might help someone consider their position.
