I lied to my son when he was ten years old, and I still think about it. I thought the circumstance made it the right thing to do, partially hoping things would change by the time he reached adulthood, but I am unsure all these years later.
A little background.
While working at a Fortune 500 company years ago, a former employer stated everyone was required to work 12-14 hour days, including weekends, for the next eight weeks. I went to my supervisor and only then revealed a medical condition due to a childhood injury and the impact this schedule would have on my health. Rather than having some empathy for the situation, I was treated poorly and ultimately let go. My son was concerned because he has a language disorder that will cross his lifespan and was worried he would not find a job given what happened to me. I told him most people are genuine and kind and would object to what happened to me, but he still worries.
Not enough has changed since he was ten. Hiring managers continue to focus on specific attributes, unable or unwilling to consider candidates' positive qualities, concerned it will be a risk to hire someone with a disability. As an HR professional, I know two things for sure: it's a risk to hire anyone, and it's never appropriate to tell an applicant they're not a cultural fit.

After graduating as a nursing professional, Jill Willcox worked as a liaison between insurance companies and individuals who sustained catastrophic injuries while at work. Over time, her work grew to include other groups with an emphasis on Accessibility—this work helped move individuals toward a more independent life by removing barriers. Overall, this allowed individuals to be more independent and reduced medical care costs with fewer hospitalizations and on-going treatments. Her efforts now are to increase access to websites and Information Communication Technology (ICT), so access is available to everyone.
David Willcox graduated with a Bachelor of Science from Tulsa University having double majored in Chemical Engineering and Mathematics.

Amelia Willcox graduated from Clark University with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology. She earned her Master of Science in Speech-Language Pathology from Northwestern University. Through both areas of study, it became apparent to Amelia that thinking about a person as a whole is the most successful approach to helping them succeed in their personal and professional life. Amelia has an interest in the impact of speech-language disorders, and other conditions, on people as they transition to higher education and enter the workforce. This brought Amelia to Iterators LLC.
