City employees learned about and discussed strategies to be more inclusive to neurodiversity in the workplace


The City of Everett recently held its Lunch and Learn for the month of March at Everett City Hall. This month’s program was titled “Neurodiversity in the Work Place: Great Minds DON’T Always Think Alike.” City employees were pleased to be joined by MGH Aspire Senior Program Manager Dr. Elise Wulff to discuss neurodiversity, which is an umbrella term that can include attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), autism or other learning differences, such as dyslexia.

Those who participated were able to gain increased perspective and practical strategies to support neurodiversity in the workplace. The training taught participants how to understand and access the unique talents of neurodivergent employees and build a workplace culture more inclusive of neurodiversity for all.

Lunch and Learn is a monthly program created and moderated by the City of Everett’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Director, Cathy Draine. It allows City employees to come together, share ideas and experiences and discuss new topics while enjoying lunch. The series is a part of the City’s commitment to engage, educate and elevate.
