Strengthening Workforce Engagement for Neurodiverse Workers

On behalf of the Future Skills Centre, the Conference Board of Canada is conducting a new research study to explore current best practices and strategies for strengthening workplace engagement amongst neurodiverse Canadians. In particular, we are looking to gain more in-depth insights into the perspectives, experiences, and needs of neurodiverse Canadian workers and their employers. This project aims to combat stigma and bias against neurodiverse Canadians while also providing recommendations for how best to retain and support neurodiverse talent.
