About this Talk

These talks start with my story as an HR professional with ADHD and how I navigated my way through my career as a neurodiverse employee. Surveys show that unemployment of neurodiverse talent remains higher than a country's national unemployment average, even though recruiting such talent increases innovation and creativity across teams. So how do we get HR and leaders to think differently about recruiting from this pool and creating better opportunities for neurodiverse talent? My talk will explain this and more.
