Career Exploration

Since the pandemic, LCA pivoted from a one-day Career Exploration event to a six-month virtual Career Exploration/Career Incubator Academy on Zoom on the second Tuesday of each month from 12 noon – 3 pm PT.

During our six-month LCA cohort that starts with the launch of ReelAbilities Film Festival NY (April – October) and ReelAbilities Film Festival Los Angeles (October – April), there are several significant opportunities for corporate executive engagement and collaborative synergy.

Months 1 – 3:

Career Exploration includes informational workshops and panels

– Economic Empowerment/Financial Literacy – Working While Not Jeopardizing Disability Benefits

– Self-Identification: How to Leverage Your Disability to Sharpen Your Competitive Edge

– You are your Verbs: Showcasing Your Talent, Building Your Living Portfolio

– Networking: Expanding Your Professional Network

– How to Make it in the Media (for those who want to work at companies)

– Disability Narrative Imperative (for entrepreneurial filmmakers and storytellers)
