GENERAL MEETING - Leveraging Neurodiversity for Organizational Improvement
Explore how a neurodivergent workforce can elevate your organization. Research suggests that 25% of the U.S. population identifies as neurodivergent and of this number, 40% remain unemployed. Organizations that tap into the wide range of experiences that shape thinking, learning, and perceiving the world can enhance the workplace in many ways, including improved recruiting, retention, and employer brand metrics. Neurodivergent workers contribute their talents, skills, and perspectives in ways that can directly benefit your organization’s mission and support productivity and performance. Organizations of all sizes have scaled up programs that emphasize neurodiversity to increase hiring capability during a time of talent scarcity. Join us to learn how you can leverage neurodiverse initiatives for organizational effectiveness.
- Define Neurodiversity and its impact on workplace culture.

ABOUT THE SPEAKER

Earlier in his career, he was Division President for a healthcare consultancy, taking the firm from start-up to a successful sale in three years. Jeff began his career for a Boston-based staffing and consulting firm where he opened and built their West Coast operations from Silicon Valley.
After his son was diagnosed on the autism spectrum, Jeff began a deep exploration into neurodiversity which ultimately led to the formation of Potentia – combining multiple passions to bring innovation to business internationally and opportunity to the remarkable and often underemployed, neurodiverse community.
