The Power of Different Thinkers #NeurodiversitySXSW
Our education system is serving to make work-ready employees. Workplaces then need to be ready to adopt them, resource and support them through the transition and beyond. More and more employers are recognizing now the importance of inclusion in the workplace. But it's not just about age, gender, sexuality and ethnicity. Neurodiverse individuals can bring a unique range of skills, gifts, talents and completely different perspectives that their neurotypical counterparts may not have.
Location: Austin Convention Center, Room 18CD, 11:30 AM- 12:30 PM.
