Today’s Solutions: July 21, 2024

At the Optimist Daily, we are proud to celebrate neurodiversity— the idea that neurological differences are to be recognized and respected as any other human variation. That’s why we are pleased to see that Goldman Sachs has become the latest company to target job candidates on the autism spectrum as it looks to boost diversity. The investment bank told employees that it’s launching an eight-week paid internship for individuals with work experience who identify as neurodiverse, which includes those with autism, dyslexia, ADHD, developmental disorders and other mental health conditions.

The program, which provides “on-the-desk” work experience in one of Goldman’s divisions in New York, New Jersey and Salt Lake City, is designed to lead to a full-time job at the firm. Amid a tight labor market, more and more employers in the US have turned to populations that traditionally have been underemployed. Amongst those companies are Ford, IBM, and Microsoft.
