Tap into talent: Ending the underrepresentation of neurodiversity in the workplace

In the wake of a nationwide labor shortage and the restructuring of the workplace, employers have an opportunity to expand their DEI initiatives to include less visible populations.Being inclusive of neurodiversity — which commonly refers to those with ADHD, dyslexia, dyspraxia and autism — can open up an untapped population of employee talent. At least 20% of the adult population is neurodiverse, yet 80% of those who are neurodiverse are unemployed, according to the Harvard Business Review. And with 10 million job openings looking to be filled, these employees are equipped to bring skills and creativity into a workforce that has largely ignored them.
