Keynote Speaker

We are thrilled to announce that human rights lawyer and author Haben Girma will present a keynote address at our Neurodiversity in the Workplace National Conference in March. The first Deafblind person to graduate from Harvard Law School, Haben believes disability is an opportunity for innovation, and she teaches organizations the importance of choosing inclusion.

Named a White House Champion of Change by President Obama, Haben has also received the Helen Keller Achievement Award as well as a spot on the Forbes 30 Under 30 list, and she has delivered a TIME100 Talk.
