This one-day workshop will include networking opportunities, presentations from researchers and companies with neurodiversity hiring initiatives and conversations with neurodiverse young professionals. Join us to explore how to make the workplace work for neurodivergent adults.
What do we mean by neurodivergent?
Neurodiversity is the idea neurological differences that can lead to challenges in learning and socializing are natural human variations. Diagnoses such as Dyslexia, ADHD, and Autism are examples of these variations. With a deeper understanding of the differences that define all of us, learning and work environments can be designed to:
- Respect and accommodate these differences
- Harness the strengths that accompany them
The label of neurodivergent transcends medical diagnoses and any adult who feels their neurology diverges from the “typical” may choose to adopt it.
Who should attend?

- Entering the workforce for the first time
