Neurodiversity in the High-Tech Workforce

Date: June 2, 2015, Time: 8:00am - 12:00pm
Agenda

Please join Netwoven & Microsoft for a conference on Neurodiversity and self-advocacy. The conference seeks to raise public awareness of neurodiversity and what it means to employees and employers in the workforce.

Neurodiversity is a worldwide movement that maintains dyslexia to be a variation of human brain wiring. Neurodiversity emphasizes this spectrum of brain function in all humans and suggests that to better understand the perspectives of those around us, we should not only try to see the world though their eyes, but understand it through their brains.
