Destigmatized: Visible & Invisible Disabilities and Neurodivergence

DIVERSITY REBOOT SERIES 2022:

Working-age adults with disabilities participate in the workforce significantly less than those without disabilities, while neurodiverse adults continue to experience unemployment rates much higher than their neurotypical counterparts. These disheartening realities are often due to discrimination and unconscious bias; barriers that prevent recruitment processes from being accessible to all candidates; or workplaces with physical spaces, procedures, and technology that is designed for able-bodied, neurotypical workers.

Disability and neurodiversity inclusion is a critical, yet often overlooked component of DEI efforts and business expansion. PowerToFly is looking to change that by hosting a one-day, interactive summit focusing on destigmatizing disabilities and neurodivergence in the workplace, both visible and invisible.

Please join us for talks on topics such as:

  • Understanding neurodiversity
  • The benefits and drawbacks that hybrid and remote work can have on a person with a disability
  • Respectful and inclusive language
  • The historical context of disability in the public sphere
  • Accessible technology
  • And much more
