Ableism is pervasive in our workplace culture and often can be internalized by people with disabilities in a way that negatively impacts our own self-worth, self-esteem, and decisions to share our identities within the workplace. Those same attitudes also are grounded in stereotypes that hold us back professionally. How can disabled employees begin to unmask, be our most authentic selves, and develop a sense of pride? Join Haley for a candid and fun discussion to acknowledge Disability Pride Month, bust the stereotypes of who and what people with disabilities are, and come away with some practical guidance to build a truly accessible and inclusive environment for all.

Presented by:

Haley Moss
Disability Advocate

Haley Moss was diagnosed with autism when she was three years old. Fast-forward to today, and she is an attorney, author, advocate, artist, and consultant who is passionate about disability inclusion and neurodiversity. Haley takes that passion for helping the world be more inclusive and accessible for people with disabilities and combines it with her personal and professional experiences to bring unique insight and perspective across different professions and settings. Haley is a keynote speaker and educator and loves to speak publicly about her experiences and be in front of a crowd. Her philosophy is that if sharing her story could make a difference in one person’s life, then it was all worth it. In addition to her advocacy work, she is also an adjunct professor at Taylor University in the Psychology department.
