Neurodiversity at Work: Valuing Teammates Who are Wired Differently

I am a Visual Designer in corporate America; I am also on the Autism Spectrum. I’ve thrived in my career using self-awareness as a tool for bringing out my best work and approaching design from a different direction. Growing a neurodiverse design team has its hurdles, but the pros far outweigh the cons. I will talk about improving work environments, identifying communication styles, and being a great team mate to those that are wired a bit different.

Key Takeaways:

  • Discover the benefits of hiring those with atypical brains
  • Learn how to best collaborate with individuals that have ADD, ADHD, Autism and more
  • Make your team work environment healthier and more flexible for all employees; both neurotypical and atypical
