Neurodiverse individuals may have difficulties finding employment in adulthood. However, there are educational and corporate partnership programs dedicated to making the transition to the work world smoother for neurodiverse people.

These groups of professionals train those entering the workforce, advocate for them, and educate businesses that want to bring neurodiversity into their own companies. They also bring awareness to the skill sets and abilities that those with learning disabilities, autism, and ADHD have that would benefit the workplace.

On Thursday, Dec. 3 at 2 p.m., join the following expert educators and corporate partners to discuss LD, Autism and ADHD Pathways to Success:

  • Anthony Pacilio, JPMorgan Chase’s vice president and global head of Autism at Work, an organization that forms corporate partnerships to identify roles for autistic employees and holds annual conferences educating businesspeople about the neurodiverse population’s beneficial skill set.
  • Jamell G. Mitchell, Global NCoE Ecosystem & Community Engagement Leader at Ernst & Young LLP, where he engages in public speaking to bring awareness to the advantages of working with neurodiverse individuals.
  • Jan Coplan, director of Career Connections at Landmark College, a university that caters exclusively toward individuals with learning disabilities and helps them transition to the working world. 
  • Solvegi Shmulsky, professor of psychology at Landmark College and director of the Center for Neurodiversity, the college’s entity that advocates for the neurodiverse population, helping the public to understand their benefits and unique contributions to society.

Topics discussed will include the mutual value of Landmark Colleges’ corporate partnerships, how an individualized educational approach creates professional success, and advantages of neurodiverse teams to your business.
