Career Summit

Duke University is holding the North Carolina Neurodiversity College Career Summit on Friday, November 3rd. The event will be held virtually.

The Neurodiversity College Career Summit is open to neurodivergent college students, graduate students, and recent graduates (up to 1 year) throughout North Carolina. Neurodiversity is an inclusive term that emphasizes the abilities of people with “brain differences” that are distinct from what is considered “typical.” As a social justice movement, neurodiversity aims to recognize the strengths and unique challenges of those with autism, ADHD, and other neurological differences; the summit is not just open to LiNC-IT participants!

The virtual 2023 NC Neurodiversity College Career Summit connects NC college students pursuing degree-related (paid) internships and full-time opportunities with employers who are seeking to establish or maintain work environments supporting neurodiversity.

During the college career summit, students can sign up to talk with employers one-on-one between 11:00 AM and 2:00 PM. Prior to that, there will also be a keynote related to neurodiversity.

There is no fee for job seekers to register for the college career summit. The fee for employers is $50.
