Employers often overlook the true potential of people who stutter because of false stereotypes and misperceptions. And, people who stutter routinely face workplace stigmas resulting in diminished employment opportunities and career advancement roadblocks.

We Stutter @ Work is an on-going initiative from the National Stuttering Association (NSA). Its purpose is to educate employers about stuttering and how people who stutter make for great hires as well to prepare people who stutter for career success.

In 2020, the NSA anticipates hosting a 1-Day Conference to bring together employers, Diversity and Inclusion executives and career focused adults who stutter. The agenda will focus on stuttering education and awareness to help eliminate workplace stigmas and improve employment outcomes for people who stutter.

The NSA and PayPal have created this One-Day Conference happening on Friday, Oct. 25 in San Jose, CA to bring greater awareness of stuttering in the workplace to Silicon Valley businesses and to the stuttering community.
