Neurodiversity as a Competitive Advantage
July 21, 2021 | 2:30 PM - 3:30 PM EDTFree
“As corporate diversity programs enter the mainstream and the benefits of hiring workers from underrepresented backgrounds become more widely known, there is still one group that isn’t often talked about: the neurodiverse. Neurodiversity is an umbrella term that refers to the breadth of human neurocognitive functioning. Neurodivergent people can experience conditions including autism, ADHD, obsessive-compulsive disorders, and dyslexia, to name just a few. Meanwhile, companies that have started seeking out neurodiverse talent are already seeing the benefits.
Together, with a host of neurodiversity champions, we’ll have a timely discussion around how individuals can harness their differences as gifts, and how companies can lean into neurodiversity to create more inclusive and productive workplaces.”
