Neurodiverse people are constantly navigating a society that frowns upon mental health. This makes it difficult for them to lead independent lives and have fulfilling careers. However, that does not mean that they do not have anything to bring to the conversation, so to say. In this session, we will address how volunteer managers can make their programs accessible and supportive to neurodiverse volunteers, how to write, post, and recruit equitable positions, and how to get staff and leaders on board.
Sarah Philippe (she/her) is passionate about volunteerism, accessibility, history, and ice cream. She has been a leader of volunteers at several different non-profits throughout the Minnesota Twin Cities area, ranging from performance art centers to victim services organizations to healthcare facilities. She earned her Certification in Volunteer Administration in 2021 and has completed certificates in Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in the Workplace and Ethical and Inclusive Leadership, both from the University of South Florida Muma College of Business. In her free time, she likes spending time with her cat, eating ice cream, and playing with her nieces and nephews.
