Current Conversations Virtual Discussion Forums
The Sharp Equality Alliance (SEA) is pleased to offer a series of virtual discussion sessions titled "Current Conversations" that explores themes around identity.
These enlightening online discussion forums provide a community space for Sharp employees and affiliated physicians to learn and discuss a range of current topics, from race and ethnicity to gender and identity, to religion and cultural practices, and more.
This month's topic is "Autism, Neurodiversity and How to Be a Better Ally at Work." The presentation will offer first-hand accounts of life on the autism spectrum and will provide employees with ways to be more informed on topics related to autism, diversity, equity and belonging.
Special guest speaker:
Marcelle Ciampi (aka Samantha Craft), MA, senior manager of diversity, equity and inclusion at Ultranauts Inc., and author of "Everyday Aspergers"
Topics of discussion include:
- What it means to be neurodiverse
- Challenges faced by people on the autism spectrum at work
- How we can incorporate this information so we can be better allies
