Why Neurodiversity Should be at the Top of Every Employer’s List
“Neurodiversity is a journey.”
– Louis Chesney, Diversity and Inclusion Product Manager, Whil, a Re-Think Division
What do Albert Einstein, Henry Ford, Richard Branson, Bill Gates and Elon Musk have in common? All are neurodiverse individuals who have made significant contributions to society. While DEI has been a notable area of interest for employers over the last several years, companies are starting to recognize the benefits of hiring neurodiverse talent such as these notable figures.
The I in DEI (Inclusion) refers to the practice or policy of providing equal access to opportunities and resources for people who might otherwise be excluded, such as those with physical or developmental disabilities and members of other marginalized groups. This definition applies to individuals who are neurodiverse or, in broad terms, think, behave and socialize distinctly due to an underlying condition that makes their brain atypical.
