Program overview

The Neurodiversity Program was launched in April 2020 in honor of Autism Awareness Month to support a profoundly underserved community that suffers high and disproportionate unemployment rates. The first cohort was initiated in August of 2020 and since then 190 full-time employees have been hired into technology roles in the U.S. and India. Recent enterprise expansion has provided opportunities in Corporate Finance and there are ongoing discussions with our Corporate & Investment Banking, Wealth & Investment Management, Credit Card, HR/Accommodations and Legal teams.

We have begun planning for a new learning series called Developing My Career at Wells Fargo (internal mobility and effective employment) and are incubating a skills development platform (Community Enrichment) to facilitate community engagement with the neurodiversity community. Fundamentally, this model is extensible to support a diversity of historically underserved and underrepresented populations.
