The UNT Neurodiversity Professional Network serves employees that identify as Neurodivergent, as well as allies, and focuses on three areas:
- Support neurodivergent employees so that they can contribute to the university's mission as effectively as possible;
- Educate allies so that they can support the work of neurodivergent colleagues from a basis in current, accurate information;
- Represent neurodivergent employees to the university community so that their value and contributions are recognized.
Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) are voluntary, employee-led groups that foster a diverse, inclusive workplace aligned with organizational mission, values, goals, business practices, and objectives. ERG’s are a critical piece of an organization’s diversity and inclusion strategy. The University of North Texas, through the Division of Inclusion, Diversity, Equity and Access, supports the work of ERGs in the development, support and retention of employees.
