The Neurodiverse Experience in a Remote Setting & How Companies Can Improve

The Future Of Work - The Remote and Hybrid Office

The remote workplace can be a boon or a minefield for neurodiverse employees; it depends whom you ask. Some may find that no office white noise helps them focus better, while some may struggle with too many Slack messages that used to be quick face-to-face chats. In this talk, Marcelle Ciampi, Autistic Author & Senior Manager of DEI at Ultranauts Inc., discusses the neurodiverse remote work experience, and what remote organizations must do better to support their neurodiverse employees’ success.
