Are there any other neurodivergent women in this group?

I'd love any advice or insights you may have about disclosing my disability status to a large employer.

I've always worked at small companies and am making the jump to a massive company this week. I'm mainly wondering if there will be big differences in the disclosure process or reactions to the disclosure between a small and large company.

I don’t have any advice to give but wanted to give you a big KUDOS! Congrats on this big step in your career!


wondering the same... disclosing in the application phase foe me has been something to think about.


In my experience larger companies have had more/better infrastructure/policies in place to get accommodations or to help you work out issues. The smaller companies I’ve worked at either had just one annual workplace safety/anti-harassment seminar or were still so startup that they didn’t have anything beyond the basic legal language in their contracts and no hr. I would talk to your new place’s hr person to see how they recommend you proceed with disclosure. I know it’s a struggle finding the balance where people understand without prejudging you. I’m still working on it myself. Courage!
