    New employees with ADHD may struggle with meeting employers’ performance expectations. We will discuss how ADHD impacts productivity and time management and therefore which types of strategies will be more effective. We will also discuss how to reduce the social impacts of ADHD and whether to disclose a diagnosis of ADHD in the workplace.

    In today's demanding work environments, burnout has become a prevalent concern. For neurodivergent individuals, the risk of burnout is significantly higher. Often, neurodivergent individuals feel compelled to mask their diagnoses, exerting additional effort to conform to perceived expectations. This constant masking, coupled with the inherent challenges of navigating a neurotypical world, can lead to severe emotional, physical, and mental exhaustion. For career services staff preparing individuals for workplace transition or liaising with employers, this presentation aims to explore strategies that individuals and workplaces can implement to promote inclusion, prevent burnout, and harness the unique strengths of neurodivergent employees. By fostering a supportive and understanding environment, organizations can empower their workforces, unleash innovative ideas, and retain valuable talent.


  • Time:

    Tuesday, February 6, from 2:45 – 3:45 p.m. Eastern


    Hearing the stories of neurodivergent employees is usually the best way for employers and supervisors to understand the unique needs of these workers and to capitalize on their strengths. This panel discussion will afford attendees the opportunity to learn from varied employees’ experiences and ask them questions.
