In 2015, Neil Barnett helped roll out a pilot program that would identify and bring in autistic candidates for positions at Microsoft’s headquarters. Microsoft’s mission to broaden the neurodiversity of its workforce goes beyond just employing qualified candidates; it seeks continued success through assigned mentors, support systems, and special training for managers and colleagues. The team is now seeking to scale the program, holding it four times a year, expanding the applicant pool to the entire country, and shortening the four-week-long program down to two.
