Behind the Mask: Understanding Invisible Disabilities

On March 15, 2021 The Basilica Employment Ministry presented this free virtual workshop, led by Cindy Edwards and Annie Montemayor. The unique workshop was developed to:
  • Educate people on the most common invisible disabilities in the workforce today
  • Provide data correlating to the future workforce and invisible disabilities
  • Discuss how to build a culture of disability awareness and acceptance
  • Give resources on understanding when to refer, disclosure rights, privacy and options that protect people with invisible disabilities
  • Promote self-advocacy; helping people understand steps for requesting reasonable accommodations
  • Teach conversation skills for discussing invisible disabilities in the workplace and beyond
