I’m seeing a repeat of the “business case” approach that was used (is probably still being used) to justify hiring more women and more people of the global majority. It’s dehumanizing, which colonization does so well.

As someone doing work that touches neurodiversity, I am very interested to see where this series goes. It is quite hard not to place neurotypicality at the center of the neurodivergent struggle when that perspective is wrapped up in the white supremacist system that marginalizes neurodivergences. It's also so difficult to have a dialogue at work about neurodiversity inclusion that doesn't highlight our unique strengths in the context of employability. While it does feed into the same white supremacist capitalist framework, neurodivergent people do still need to sell and market themselves to remain employed within this exploitative and extractive system.

Thanks for putting these thoughts out there. I'm looking forward to the next post.
