Lunch and Learn: Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) and Autism

July 13 @ 12:00 pm - 12:45 pm

FINALLY, our educators can join the conversation in this summer edition of our Lunch & Learn! The virtual meeting will be moderated by Good Friend, Inc. (GFI) co-founders Chelsea Budde and Denise Schamens, both mothers to neurodivergent young adults. GFI board director and autistic advocate Sarah Russell also contributes invaluable perspective to the discussion.
Topics include:
– The concept of neurodiversity.
– Why hiring autistic workers is a sound business practice.
– How Good Friend, Inc. can help companies be inclusive of adults on the autism spectrum.
If your company would like to enhance its DEI focus, or you would like to better understand the shift from education to employment for autistic adolescents, bring your lunch for a casual time of open learning and sharing. Register to reserve your spot for this timely discussion.
FREE, but registration is required:
