What does neurodiversity mean?
Neurodiversity refers to natural variances in the brain which result in different ways of thinking, learning, and socializing.
What is a skills-based demonstration?
A skills-based demonstration is a problem-solving exercise, built by the manager and our neurodivergent hiring expert. For example, if you apply for a job that requires data entry in Excel, your demonstration will emulate an in-role example of data entry in Excel. Before your interview, we will call you to talk through the exercise, answer any questions, and make sure you’re feeling ready to go.
Do you have an employee social group or working group specifically for the neurodivergent?
We do. Our Charles Schwab Ability Network brings together the neurodivergent, and anyone else, who wants to advocate for accessibility, create awareness about disabilities (visible and invisible), and celebrate progress.
What interviewing accommodations can you make?
Accommodations can be essential to meeting your career goals. During the interview, if you need a reasonable accommodation like assistance completing a talent profile, an ASL interpreter, closed captioning, or something else, contact Human Resources at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 800-275-1281.
Did you work with any neurodiversity specialists to create this program?
We partnered with Neurodiversity in the Workplace to rethink and rework our traditional hiring process in order to accommodate and develop neurodivergent talent.
