The Invisible D Podcast Powered by Digitability

Less than 30% of people with neurodiverse needs are employed. Recent Accenture research studying the correlation between disability in the workplace and profit found that employers who embraced and supported people with disabilities experienced increased profits. Yet, despite this data, there are still significant attitudinal barriers that prevent people with neurodiverse needs from obtaining employment.

 

Disability is often referred to as the “invisible D” in diversity and inclusion. For people with neurodiverse needs, significant barriers to employment, such as subconscious bias and ableism, exist. These barriers prevent them from bringing immense value to today’s workplaces.

 

Self-advocate Haley Moss, the first openly autistic person admitted to the Florida bar, along with self-advocate Jordan Schmidt, employee with Philadelphia-based Digitability, Inc., a cloud-based, work-ready program for individuals with neurodiverse needs, such as autism, will co-host this innovative podcast. The duo will discuss the challenges they have experienced as individuals with neurodiverse needs, both seeking and maintaining employment, as well as the current landscape that exists as it pertains to the hiring practices of Fortune 500 companies.

 

Neurodiverse individuals bring immense value to the modern day workplace, and Haley and Jordan aim to bring awareness to this topic overall, as well as provide advice and insights for those seeking employment, by speaking to the influencers and individuals that can make significant change for individuals with neurodiverse needs.

First lawyer in Florida who is open about her autism

Haley Moss looks forward to growing in her legal career and finds it easy to give her all at work, she said. It's not the job that's proved hard for her.

"The things that are hardest for me are actually outside of the office, such as driving and daily living skills," she said. "Starting a career is a huge transition for anybody, but is monumental for autistic people as it means we have to establish new routines."
