Neurodiversity Employment Database

Welcome to our Neurodiversity Employment Database. This database was created by Vanderbilt University undergraduate student Elizabeth Walther and tracks neurodiversity-friendly and neurodiversity-focused companies. This database is specific to the United States.

Using the database:

  • This database can be searched using the search bar in the top-right hand corner. Users can search for any keywords, including state (state abbreviations are used), and pressing the return key. If the database does not update when the return key is pressed, no results have been found.
  • The database can be organized by column in ascending or descending order by clicking the appropriate arrow next to the column name. Clicking the column name will reset the column to its original order.
  • In the context of this database the company sizes are described as follows: micro = 1 – 10 employees, small = 10 – 50 employees, medium = 50 – 100 employees, large = 250 – 2,000 employees, and huge = 2,000+ employees.
  • The following are the industry keywords into which the companies have been categorized: agriculture, art, assembly, animals, construction, consulting, entertainment, finance, food, healthcare, law, maintenance, manufacturing, marketing, packaging, public services, recycling, research, retail, tech, and utilities.
  • The column ‘customer facing’ corresponds to whether employees have interactions with customers (i.e., the general public) whilst undertaking their day-to-day duties. In this context ‘depends’ refers to the role the employee is hired into, as to whether it will be customer facing.

Disclaimer: This database will be updated when possible but please note that this database does not necessarily showcase every neurodiversity-friendly or neurodiversity-focused hiring initiative or company in the United States.
