It's Time to Talk About Neurodiversity

High-functioning neurodivergents—such as those with ADHD and autism—often possess deep, specialized knowledge, a persistent spirit, superior problem-solving skills, and unmatched passion for their work. Yet they’re frequently flagged as poor culture fits, lacking in soft skills, and failing to meet certain workplace expectations. To make matters worse, about half of neurodivergents are undiagnosed—mostly women—and don’t understand why they struggle to succeed. More than 12% of your team is likely affected. So what does inclusion look like when the complexities of neurodiversity are added to the mix? This talk will be led by Women of Email's Jen Capstraw in conversation with PowerToFly's Meg Alexander.
