In this ISPI SoCal Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Accessibility interview, Jessica Lee, is Executive Director and Co-Founder of NeuroTalent Works, a non-profit organization advancing neurodiversity inclusion and connecting employers to neurodivergent.
Join ISPI SoCal as we discuss autism and neurodiversity (diverse ways of thinking, learning, and behaving). Our speaker, Jessica Lee, says, “neurodivergent workers must be part of a company’s broader neurodiversity hiring initiatives.” In this session, you’ll learn about neurodivergent communities –– employees with cognitive or developmental differences, such as dyslexia and autism. Participants will have the opportunity to ask themselves: How can I build more inclusive talent management and attraction practices for neurodivergent candidates and colleagues.
