The Diversity and Inclusion Track
Presented by the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee
About the Program
This session will address how attorneys can become affected by mental health and acquired disabilities and what law firms can do to support them. Many attorneys acquire health conditions and become impaired but don’t view it as a disability and are afraid
to mention it. This seminar is intended to discuss those issues.
You Will Learn
- What issues are considered to be a disability
- The factors that contribute to attorneys not knowing they have a disability/ignore that they have a disability
- How firms and other organizations can support attorneys with disabilities
Who Should Attend
Law firm personnel, lawyers with acquired health conditions, and anyone interested in disability terms.
