“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.

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.”
