In the Network – Our Stories
Great minds think alike – or do they?
Most of us have heard the phrase “great minds think alike” – but have you ever stopped to wonder how limiting this sentiment is?
In honor of autism awareness month, we interviewed Tom Markley, EY Global Client Executive, and parent to a child on the autism spectrum; and Heather Tartaglia, EY Global and Americas Neuro-Diverse Center of Excellence Market Activation Leader. The focus of our discussion was neurodiversity and how we can uncover and challenge our biases to truly embrace the unique abilities of all individuals – and dispel the notion that all “great” minds think the same way.
We also want to hear from you!
