Adding Neurodiversity and Disabilities to your DI&E Strategy
There is more to DI&E then race, color and sexual preference. Business leaders can not forget about other underrepresented populations such as disabled workers, and those with invisible diversities such as autism, dyslexia, and mental health.
Neurodiverse individuals are individuals that celebrate their cognitive differences and the skills and abilities that come with this difference. Neurodiverse individuals may be autistic, have ADHD, dyslexia or dysphagia. Despite a high level of intelligence for this group, the unemployment rate for autistics alone hovers around 85%. Persons with disabilities (PWD) have a slightly higher employment rate, around 30%, but are still underrepresented and under supported in the workplace. The current escalation in diversity, inclusion and equity efforts by organizations must include these populations in their efforts. Grit & Flow can help. We can educate, train, and create programs that will benefit these populations but also all individuals within your organization. Let us help.
