Through Minds of All Kinds, we celebrate and honor the different information processing and communication styles of our employees. In fact, we believe neurodiversity is a key driver of Seagate innovation.
“I helped create our Neurodiversity ERG because I know, from personal experience, some of the challenges and capabilities possessed by the neurodiverse community. Seagate Minds of All Kinds advocates and supports the recruitment and retention of neurodiverse people. Together, we believe we can increase workforce diversity and drive innovation by focusing on capabilities rather than limitations. It is a win-win to see Seagate's inclusivity and provide an innovative, competitive advantage.”
"Embracing Neurodiversity means creating greater space for inclusion and innovation. My team and I are committed to self-educating and raising awareness about neurodiversity, thus living Seagate's core value of inclusion. Enabling a more diverse workforce not only makes Seagate an even better place to work but also helps us think outside the box to unlock greater sources of innovation and creativity."
Seagate’s Minnesota campus is partnering with nonprofit agency Mind Shift to hire temporary staff for positions that are highly suited for detail-oriented individuals on the autism spectrum.
Our Colorado office hosted a neurodiversity education session focused on inclusive language, diverse hiring, and best practices in the workplace.
In partnership with Uptimize, a leader in neurodiversity education, Seagate employees can participate in Neurodiversity training to learn how to contribute to a neurodiverse work culture.
Minds of All Kinds fosters an inclusive environment by staying current with best hiring practices, neurodiversity training, and partnering with local universities to bring education and support to our employees.
