Big Brain Energy: The Power of Neurodivergence in Media

Mar 10, 2024

2:30pm – 3:30pm CT

Neurodiversity and neurodivergence may feel like buzz words that are thrown around, but what do they mean, and why does it matter? In this session, neurodivergent experts within the media and entertainment industry will share their own perspectives on what it means to be neurodivergent, why authentic representation of neurodivergence is necessary, and how employers, allies, and studio execs can foster and cultivate an inclusive environment where big brain energy can thrive.
