NeuroTalent Works, based in Pasadena, has made a name for itself by building neurodiverse workplaces by transitioning gifted individuals on the autism spectrum into valuable talent for corporations.
In less than five years, NeuroTalent Works has engaged with nearly 50 corporations that have shown varying levels of interest. The organization’s Talent Readiness program prepares neurodivergent individuals for such jobs — assisting with the placement process as well as procuring the needed accommodations and support.
NTW recently hosted its first gathering of donors and partners at 71Above in downtown Los Angeles, where guests mingled and conversed, fostering further partnerships with the community, thanks to the generous donation by the venue’s owner.
Attendees heard firsthand from both a neurodivergent individual as well as a hiring manager at one of the partner corporations.
“The event proved to be a celebration of the work achieved thus far, as well as inspiration for continued efforts to support Autism employment,” said Herag Haleblian, the president and founder of NeuroTalent Works.
