New professionals, congratulations on joining this amazing field! During your first few weeks in your position, you were probably given a ton of information about laws, processes, and procedures and got right to work figuring things out. You probably learned quickly that working in the disability resources field can present many opportunities to be subject matter experts and lead the university in addressing inequities. But when you are new to the field, this can seem intimidating, regardless of the size or type of institution or number of staff in your office. There is so much to learn, and the expectation may feel enormous to know everything about disability law and how it applies to your position during your first week. During this webinar, we will dive into a discussion on topics such as the foundations of our field; developing your “why”; opportunities for career progression, professional development, and growth opportunities; and preventing burnout.
