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.
Throughout 2019 and 2020, the NSA will be hosting 1-Day Conferences bringing 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.
