Neurodiversity Resources - Collective Impact Program

This program is to help inform and connect people to corporate job-related neurodiversity programs. In addition, to strive to promote the creation of equitable, inclusive, and accessible work environments.

A collective impact program is a long-term initiative with multiple participants and independent workstreams aligned to a set of strategic goals. As an independent non-profit trade association, Agile Alliance acts as a backbone organization to advance the program goals.  Each of the participating organizations works independently on mutually reinforcing activities.

What is Neurodiversity?

In 1998, sociologist Judy Singer created the term neurodiversity to support the idea that those who learn, think, work, and behave differently from current societal norms should be treated equally in the workplace and community.
