Greetings from Lime Connect UVic,

We are hosting a series of telepanels that a number of your students, grads and even faculty who happen to have a disability may have an interest in. Please share the information through your normal distribution channels so that those who may benefit can take advantage of these opportunities.
*********************************************************************************************************************************************************************************

Join us in April for a series of tele-panels on  “Getting Creative:
Strategies vs. Accommodations at Work”.

Asking for a formal accommodation is certainly one option for getting the support you need to be more effective at work. However, there are numerous compensatory strategies that you can put in place when you don’t want to disclose your disability or you don’t want to make a formal request of your employer. From assistive technology to work space changes to lifestyle modifications, come hear experts representing various disabilities discuss the mechanisms they have put in place at work to help them be more productive. Bring your questions and ideas!

Monday April 7th at 8pm EST
Tele-panel for Network members with learning disabilities and other less obvious disabilities. Leading the panel is Steve Walker; President and CEO of New England Wood Pellet LLC is a self-taught engineer and entrepreneur.
Steve is recognized as an international leader in the field of renewable energy. He will be joined by other Lime Network members including Elliott Swartz and Lime Fellowship Alum 2011 Sara Mehfoud.
