Activating Neurodiverse Workplaces

A Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Program


Tuesday, February 25, 2020
8:00 AM – 10:00 AM

Neurodiverse employees, defined as individuals with "neurological differences...[as] the result of normal/natural variations in the human genome," belong to an untapped talent pool. With unemployment running as high as 80% (sometimes higher depending on the disability), this population combats a myriad of hiring misconceptions from employers, who mistakenly believe these workers need cumbersome accommodations and face limited capabilities.

But research suggests that including individuals with neurological differences, such as autism and ADHD, gives organizations a competitive advantage, facilitating innovation and problem-solving amongst employees.

Meet employers who are updating their recruitment practices to accommodate a neurodiverse workforce that respect and acknowledge neurological differences.
