I Have ADD and So Can -- Ooh, Shiny!

Accepted Session
Short Form
Scheduled: Thursday, June 22, 2017 from 11:00 – 11:45am in B202/203


Neurodiversity is the hidden diversity on our teams. Unlike obvious external markers, mental and personality quirks or invisible disabilities are not always easy for us to remember or adjust for. But sometimes diversity in this area is as important as any other.


How can you remember and honor that your team members are all experiencing slightly different realities? How can those different realities make your product and team stronger and more effective?

Come listen to me talk about my own invisible neurodiversity and what it has taught me about being a good employee and becoming more effective because of who I am, not in spite of it.
