Bazaarvoice truly understands and fully embraces neurodiversity

 August 30, 2022

The presence of neurodiverse people in work teams can provide great benefit.

Neurodiversity, or ND, refers to variations in the human brain and cognition, for instance in sociability, learning, attention, mood and other mental functions.

Bazaarvoice actively supports a neurodiverse community, and the company shines a light on the challenges and strengths of unique cognitive functioning. As such, one of the company's Employee-led Resource Groups (ERGs) is called Uniquely Wired and is instrumental in fostering community, inclusion, and a sense of belonging for all neurodiverse employees.

Uniquely Wired envisions Bazaarvoice as a place where neurodiversity is understood and embraced.

Whether employees identify as a community member or an ally, there are many ways to get involved, learn about, and support the incredibly diverse cultures and communities found across Bazaarvoice.
