The Greater Boston Hub, organized by nonprofit consultancy Neurodiversity in the Workplace™ (NITW), is a community of practice that comes together regularly (via Zoom) to network, share knowledge, and advance neurodiversity hiring in our region.
All those in Greater Boston and New England who are interested in learning about neurodiversity, barriers faced by neurodivergent job seekers, and how to make employment accessible are welcome to join us.
December 3rd marks the final Hub Meet-Up of 2021, with more to come in 2022!
