Neurodiversity embraces and values a diversity of minds.
The last year has brought renewed focus on diversity, equity and inclusion in society, and in the workplace.
However, typically lost in that discussion is the neurodivergent community– those on the autism spectrum and with other cognitive and developmental differences.
Prior to the pandemic, the neurodivergent community had an 80% unemployment and 50% under-employment rate. We can only imagine the impact of this past year and we are taking proactive efforts to include our neurodivergent community as we rebuild and recover.
This is why NeuroTalent Works and the Washington DC Global Shapers Community – an initiative of the World Economic Forum – have partnered to launch the Future of Neurodiverse Work Initiative.
We hope you will join us!
