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.”
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.
Multiple Seagate sites hosted neurodiversity education sessions focused on best practices in inclusive language and diverse hiring in the workplace.
Seagate employees can review several resources around Universal Design and accessibility, intersectionality, and neurodiversity awareness to help 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.
