Disabilities 101 + Being an Ally

Disabilities 101 + Being an Ally

I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to share my story as a disabled Latina in the workforce with the amazing Minda Harts and women at The Memo. I got to rep The Melanin Collective as we discussed Working with a Disability: Disabilities 101 and Self-Advocacy. After our fireside chat, I wanted to make sure I shared concrete ways we can be allies to people with disabilities in the workplace.

ICYMI: After 6, Body Image In The Workplace

Last week, we hosted our monthly After 6: Career Conversations event online. 

This month, we partnered with Dressing Room 8 -- an organization that empowers women through fashion and coaching -- to talk about Body Image in the Workplace. It was a dynamic panel conversation, with professional women from a variety of industries -- Education, the Arts, Development, Law, Entrepreneurship, and Fashion -- and the conversation got really real.
