  • This event has passed.

This event will educate attendees about what neurodiversity is, the way that negative beliefs about neurodiversity impact the neurodiverse community, how to destigmatize the community, what issues are facing the neurodiverse community in academia, and how aspiring allies can best and continuously support neurodiverse members of our community. Panelists will discuss barriers that neurodiverse people face, and accommodations or structural changes that mitigate or dissolve these barriers. Members of the neurodiverse community bring value to Cornell University, and allies help neurodiverse people thrive. 

 This Building Allyship Series session is collaboratively hosted by the Graduate and Professional Student Diversity CouncilGraduate School Office of Inclusion and Student Engagement and Disability+, the Graduate and Professional Students with Disabilities Association.
