The panelists will share specific anecdotes for organizations to increase awareness and transform workforce management practices to make their recruitment and retention programs work for neurodiverse talent.
- One in 54 children has been diagnosed with autism, and the World Health Organization estimates that one in eight people in the world is neurodiverse.
- However, the under- and unemployment rate for these individuals runs as high as 80% in the U.S. – and for many, it’s not because of a lack of will or skill; organizations lack the awareness to make their recruitment and retention programs work for their neurodiverse talent.
