2021 Benjamin J. Geigerman Lecture Series

April 20 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Neurodiversity and the Changing World of Work

 

Join us for the annual Benjamin J. Geigerman Lecture Series! This year’s lecture will take place on Tuesday, April 20, 2021, starting at 6:30 p.m. This will be held virtually via Webex.

Many individuals with Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) struggle with finding and maintaining employment, an important aspect in helping them achieve success. This year’s lecture features a list of speakers that look at the importance of recognizing neurodiversity in corporate hiring practices.

The lecture will feature three panelists: Jeff Miller – CEO of Potentia Workforce, Chris Fornesa – an entrepreneur, and Millecent Rhind – Senior Talent Acquisition Manager at Baker Hughes.

These speakers will share what each of their specific companies are doing to assist people with ASD through programs they have created. They will also share their own personal stories with ASD.

Register for the lecture series today! There is no cost to attend this lectureship. Individuals with autism, their families, clinicians, counselors, and educators are invited to join.

*Note: A link and specific password will be sent a few days before the lecture takes place*
