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 Institutional Equity & Diversity, supports the work of ERGs in the development, support and retention of employees.
