Voices of Lime: The Intersecting Identities of LGBTQIA+ and Disability

This event is open to the public – students, staff, and alumni are all welcome to attend.

Join Lime Connect Next Gen board member and Chief Strategy Officer of the Black Veterans Project, Daniele Anderson, as she moderates a panel discussion with Lime Connect’s LGBTQIA+ Network members who live with disabilities.  During this discussion, we will explore how disability intersects with a person’s experience of gender and sexuality, and how that intersection impacts the workplace – including disclosure, career decisions, and professional relationships.   We will also cover how employers can best support their LGBTQIA+ employees with disabilities, and practical takeaways for creating and maintaining an inclusive workplace.
