Event Description:

This is a hybrid event, meaning we are offering an in-person option at Paramount Event Venue and online zoom viewing option. Please register accordingly. Sponsors are defaulted to the in-person option. Space is limited and pre-registration is required. 

Neuro Diversity
Join us, in partnership with The Diversity Movement, to hear from a number of inspiring people from all over the Triangle, as we share stories and successes of those who identify as neurodivergent and how to advocate for those with disabilities. We'll hear from Jackie Ferguson, Head of Content & Programming at The Diversity Movement, as she presents on the basics of Neurodiversity. We'll also hear from Lindsay Wrage, Founder of 321 Coffee, as she dives deeper into integrating all types of people into a workplace, and Matthew Schwab will present his Ted Talk "How I Know Including People with Down Syndrome is a Good Thing."

You'll take away a better understanding of neurodiversity, how neurodivergent employees can benefit your team and organization, and concessions that can set your neurodivergent employees up for success, and we hope you'll be inspired by the motivating stories you'll hear in this program. 




Organizations and institutions across the country are quickly realizing that diversity cannot be the end goal. Instead, we must develop safe, open, and inclusive environments for all to collaborate and co-exist. Through this event, you'll hear ways of how to foster honest and robust conversations surrounding multiple generations within a workforce and tips on how to be more generationally sensitive in a fast paced and ever-changing work environment. Explore the Morrisville Chamber online DEI toolkit
