Pink Fortitude received the 2020 Disability Awareness Award from the City of Alexandria and the Alexandria Chamber of Commerce.
On July 26, 1990, President George H.W. Bush signed the Americans with Disabilities Act into law.
On that day, I was 18 years old. I was getting ready to enter my sophomore year in college as a psychology major. I was working that summer at HersheyPark. I was vibrant and full of life and had the whole world ahead of me.
Little did I know that 30 years later I would have faced an epic health crisis that caused me to be the leading advocate for Autoimmune Disease in the Workplace.
I advocate for employees who have faced discrimination.
I educate and train employers and HR professionals.
I change corporate culture.
Fighting for legal rights for an invisible disability in the workplace has it’s share of challenges.
And it also has so many rewards.
It is a privilege and an honor to be awarded the 2020 Disability Awareness Award by the Alexandria Commission on Persons with Disabilities and the Alexandria Chamber of Commerce.
Seriously. I am in awe that they chose me and the work that I do with Pink Fortitude.
