Guest Speaker: Musi Lee from JP Morgan Chase & Co

Neuroinclusion is an important dimension of accessibility, diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts that many organizations are leaning into, considering that 17 % of the global population is neurodivergent. That data point puts emphasis on diversity of thought, skills, perspectives, and culture – and that is represented in every room and in every organization. So, who’s in the room?

As the global head of Autism at Work, Musi is responsible for establishing partnerships with regional autism organizations, including universities and research institutes in creating a talent pipeline for individuals with autism spectrum condition. Her responsibilities include creating a global Neurodiversity strategy that will develop, influence, drive and execute efficient processes and that will augment and create a firmwide Neuroinclusive culture. This model will ensure implementing Neuroinclusive end-to-end talent lifecycle as well as ensuring best practices for training of managers, recruiters and colleagues to support Neurodivergent employees.

Every spring, the University Career Center offers programming that centers on disabled community members and their professional development as well as their rights in the workforce.

The theme this year is The Future of the Neurodiverse Workforce
