Pre-registration and tickets are required for all participants. Complete information is HERE.
Because neurodivergent workers face unemployment rates as high as 80%, higher than any other disability, according to Michael Bernick for Harvard Business Review earlier this year, life skill programs are crucial for the neurodivergent community to support themselves and gain independence. “Orangetheory is proud to be part of this campaign to benefit local communities. [We are] committed to encouraging, facilitating, and upholding an environment centered on diversity, equity, and inclusion. This will be a great event for everyone to attend with a strong mission in mind,” said Brittney Scott, Studio Manager & Head Coach at Orangetheory in EG.
