You’re invited to “Bring Your Own Brain!” — a live discussion exploring neurodiversity in the STEM workforce from the perspective of a panel of neurodivergent individuals in various stages of their careers.

This free, online event will be held as a webinar via Zoom on Wednesday, April 28, 2021 from 6 - 8 p.m. [Eastern time]. Among the topics our panel will discuss include:

  • Why neurodiversity should be celebrated and encouraged in STEM fields
  • Barriers that highly-qualified neurodivergent individuals face during and after the hiring process
  • How workplaces have changed with respect to neurodiversity, and what still needs to be addressed
  • What steps educators and employers can take to create a more inclusive, accessible, supportive environment for all employees.

The discussion will be moderated by Carolyn Phillips, co-director of the Center for Inclusive Design and Innovation at Georgia Tech, and includes panelists Caroline Connell, Rua Williams, and Sam Farmer. For complete information, visit
