I am a mobile app designer and a late-diagnosed Autistic woman. I have found, over the years, that many people like me are being overlooked for jobs in my field because of unconscious bias. Join me as I walk you through my personal journey and share with you the thoughts and learnings I’ve had along the way. Growing a neurodiverse design team has its hurdles, but the pros far outweigh the cons. Hiring doesn’t have to be biased, we want to give equal opportunity to all.
