“Exploring Neurodiversity in the Workplace”

What exactly is neurodiversity, and how can hiring neurodiverse employees benefit your organization?

Neurodiversity is an aspect of diversity that enhances the workplace in numerous ways. People with neurocognitive disabilities have talents, perspectives and skills that can be distinctly beneficial in many work environments. More and more employers are beginning to understand these benefits and develop hiring initiatives that focus on recruiting neurodiverse workers. How can we ready our organizations to embrace this diverse population, and create support structures that lead to successful recruitment and retention, and shift the paradigm to make disability inclusion more effective and empowering for everyone in the workplace.

Join a conversation with UMA members and peers who are passionate about this topic.
