Dr. Robert Naseef, psychologist, author and father of a child on the autism spectrum, will kick off the afternoon session with a discussion on “Neurodiversity in the Workplace” - how companies are realizing the benefits of a diverse workforce and seeing previously-diagnosed challenges as strengths and advantages.
