Diversity You Can’t See | A BMC Co-Sponsored Event

July 27    |    12:00 PM 1:00 PM EDT

In this special one-hour web event, 30-year veteran Cynthia Coupé will share her own experience as a neurodiversity expert and mother of an autistic daughter, as well as industry insights and perspectives from three other neurodivergent proponents: one working professional in the tech industry, a grad student “on the spectrum,” and one neurodiversity staffing executive.

“Diversity You Cannot See” is presented by Making Our Strong Community Stronger and is freely available to anyone in the world on July 27, 2022 at 9 am PT/12 pm ET. A Q&A “town hall” session will follow at the same time on July 28. Replays will be available after each live event. We hope you will attend this important event.
