NEN: Philadelphia Newsletter

October 2022

With so many things going on in the neurodiversity & employment community here and beyond, we wanted to create a monthly newsletter to share relevant events, articles, and information. If you prefer not to receive the monthly newsletters, please let us know here.

If you have something that you’d like to include in our November newsletter, please submit it here by October 21.

Our October event is quickly approaching! If you want to brainstorm how we can come together as a community to continue to make strides in neurodiversity & employment, we would love to have you there! Click here to register.
