Diversity You Cannot See: A Special Event on Neurodiversity in the Mainframe Workplace

July 27, 2022 | 11:00 AM Central

Did you know today an estimated 40% of people deal with autistic, attention deficit, anxiety, and/or dyslexic disorders? Combined, these mental differences account for the bulk of what sociologists refer to as “neurodiversity,” or natural variations in everyone’s brain, particularly those who have outlying characteristics, such as autism.

In this special one-hour web event, 30-year veteran Cynthia Coupé will share her own experience as a neurodiversity expert and mother of an autistic daughter, as well as industry insights and perspectives from three other neurodivergent proponents: one working professional in the tech industry, a grad student “on the spectrum,” and one neurodiversity staffing executive.

Together, they’ll discuss how neurotypical people can better interact with this intelligent and unique population, where communication breakdowns usually happen, and what the future holds for this often misunderstood but increasingly important talent pool. They’ll also explore how societal awareness, appreciation, and participation with neurodivergent people can have a big impact on the way we work, learn, and commune with one another.

“Neurodiversity is the new normal,” Coupé says. “Even though it’s less stigmatized today, many people still don’t know how to navigate it, even though we all interact with it regularly (whether we realize it or not). To build safe spaces where everyone can grow, collaborate, and work in the way that plays to our strengths, this panel will lead the discussion on how we can better understand ourselves and each other.”

“Diversity You Cannot See” is presented by Making Our Strong Community Stronger and is freely available to anyone in the world on July 27, 2022, at 12 pm Eastern Time. A Q&A “town hall” session will follow at the same time on July 28. Replays will be available after each live event. We hope you will attend this important event.
