Event description

Description

Join PACT for our annual celebration of diversity, equity, and inclusion in innovation.

This year, we'll be exploring neurodiversity in innovation.

While most of us are familiar with the value of diversity in the cultural backgrounds, race, gender, and other individual qualities of employees, as well as the people and programs working to bring such diversity to our innovation community, we may not be as informed about how to include people affected with autism, dyspraxia, dyslexia, ADHD, social anxiety disorders, and other conditions.

Many people with these differences have higher-than-average abilities in areas that are highly valued within the tech and innovation workforce. Yet those affected often struggle to fit the profiles sought by prospective employers. As an example, according to a Drexel University study, 58% of young adults with autism are unemployed.

How can we adjust recruitment, selection, and career development policies to reflect a broader definition of talent?

We'll hear stories from people and organizations that have made neurodiversity a priority in the workplace, including Jamell G. Mitchell, Neurodiversity Chief Talent/Strategy Leader at EY.

And we'll discuss how each of us can be better educated on neurodiversity, and what tools and partnerships are available as we work to make Philadephia a truly inclusive place to live and work.
