|The MBA Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Committee will host a 90-minute CLE highlighting Oregon lawyers practicing law with invisible disabilities and how they successfully manage the unique challenges of invisible disabilities. The program will address invisible disabilities including vision, speech, and attention differences faced by hundreds of Oregon lawyers.
Attendees will become more adept at working with attorneys experiencing invisible disabilities as colleagues and opposing counsel. Those experiencing different abilities will know they are not alone and stand in solidarity with others similarly situated.
Our distinguished panel has unique insights into issues of attention deficit, organizational challenges, or communication issues and will share what they have learned and offer tools and insights. Please join us as we learn from practitioners experiencing, coaching, and supporting colleagues practicing law with differing abilities.
Our panel includes:
Heather Decker, a Productivity Coach for lawyers and service professionals.
Yael Livny, a government employment and labor lawyer.
John Robb, a trial attorney with Kevin Sali LLC.
Bryan Welch, an attorney counselor with the Oregon Attorney Assistance Program.
