the future I see: neurodivergent people solving the world’s problems

Zoom Room 2A

I graduated from college with a double whammy - in the middle of the great recession as well as being on the autism spectrum (which I didn’t know at the time). Ten years later my work was being used extensively by NASA and I got to present it in front of Anderson Cooper for a piece on 60 Minutes. I would like to talk about the potential for neurodivergent people to solve the problems facing the world, including COVID, climate change, healthcare, mental health, the economy, and racial inequality. As they see the world differently, the solutions that are straightforward to them can seem like magic to the rest of us.
