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.

LEARNER OBJECTIVES

  • Define Neurodiversity and its impact on workplace culture.
  • Identify implications of implementing neurodiversity programs.
  • Identify steps that any organization can take to leverage neurodiverse talent fully.

ABOUT THE SPEAKER

Jeff Miller - CEO & Founder of Potentia Workforce

Mr. Miller is the CEO & Founder of Potentia Workforce, a consulting firm that helps organizations to improve recruiting and retention metrics by leveraging the talents of skilled, yet often overlooked neurodistinct individuals (ADHD, dyslexia, autism, PTSD, etc.).

Jeff is an executive with more than 25 years’ experience leading high-performance organizations providing innovative solutions to the communities they serve. He has launched and led businesses in the twenty largest markets in North America and across four continents.

Prior to founding Potentia, Jeff was President of a global workforce services firm – delivering record profits while closing four acquisitions in less than eighteen months. 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.

Jeff is a sought after thought leader and has appeared numerous times on television, at conferences, and in print – sharing his experiences on neurodiversity, leadership and finding your purpose. He also serves on the Board of Trustees of Gateway Academy, a Houston-area High School for students with learning differences.

A graduate of Williams College, Jeff lives in the Houston area with his wife Samantha and awesomely cool son, Charlie.
