As a proud member of DAWN, the Disability Advancement Workplace Network People and Business Resource Group, I have been vocal about this invisibility and how it has allowed me to work differently in my role. In some ways I am able to perform my role better. For example, in explaining various systems work to colleagues, rather than walking them through a directional guide, I take them through the actual program or system. This hands-on approach helps colleagues understand processes better. It has allowed me to use my dyslexia as a new pathway for working.

Having a disability does not mean you are not competent in your role. We need to destigmatize disabilities in the workplace because they offer a level of diversity to teams that can be incredibly valuable.
