Invisible Diversity in the Workplace: Capabilities, Challenges, and Strategies
This report, “Invisible Diversity” in the Workplace: Capabilities, Challenges, and Strategies“, is a summary and guide for employers interested in promoting an emerging approach to diversity and transforming the workplace to support all individuals, including neurodiverse people and those with mental health conditions. Neurodiverse individuals – including people with autism, dyslexia, ADHD, and other conditions – and people with mental health conditions constitute a largely untapped pool of “cognitively diverse” talent, capabilities, and perspectives. Employers that recruit, hire, and enable these individuals can achieve important advantages. Yet most organizations continue to overlook this opportunity.
