Event highlights: AMCHAM welcomed our speakers to share insights and in-depth understandings of neurodiversity and how to strategically and inclusively build and support neurodiversity in the workplace. The presentations were followed by a meaningful question-and-answer session which ranged from how to embrace, promote, and support people who are neurodivergent to how companies can create a psychologically safe workplace for employees.

“Diversity has always been a topic, but inclusion is very recent. Inclusion means the ability to bring everyone in and hear all the voices. It is very important to create a culture of acceptance and understanding.” — Farida
