Event Details

In our society, more and more people are receiving autism diagnoses and/or identifying as neurodiverse.

What does that look like in the workplace? How do folks on the autism spectrum gain skills and find careers that align with their interests? Or interview and apply for jobs? How do employers recruit and retain neurodiverse people? How do we create cultures of inclusion in our offices? How do we streamline processes for accommodations? Or use universal design?

Discussion on these topics and other important issues around neurodiversity will be included in this session. There will be time for Q&A and audience participation.
