DXC Technology SPECIAL SERIES
Worldwide, 80 percent of people with autism are unemployed or underemployed. Though people with neurodiverse needs bring a number of strengths to the table, they often struggle to access the resources necessary to prepare for successful careers—and companies are unsure how to train, recruit and retain them.
In a sector that’s in search of new talent, DXC Technology is looking to lift up the next generation of neurodiverse tech workers with the Dandelion Program, an initiative that aims to increase employment opportunities for people with autism and capitalize on their innate skills. In this series sponsored by DXC Technology, we’ll explore how a neurodiverse workforce can give technology companies a competitive advantage and highlight best practices for integrating neurodiversity into company culture.
