Join Lime Connect and Nancy Oduro, a Lime Connect board member who has lived experience with these intersectionalities, as she moderates a panel discussion with Lime Connect’s Black Network members who live with disabilities.  During this discussion, we will explore how disability intersects with a person’s race and how this intersection impacts a Black person’s approach to disclosure, networking, career search, and work in general.
