On today’s episode of Diversity Straight Up, hosts Anthony and Sarika record live from EntreFEST in Iowa City with Rajesh Anandan, co-founder and CEO of Ultranauts Inc, and Lecturer at MIT.
The group dives into Rajesh’s experiences with Ultranauts and operating with a staff where the majority are neurodivergent. The group also dispels myths about neurodivergent individuals in the workplace, discuss ways that other executives can revolutionize their approach to engaging their teams, share their thoughts on gun violence in America, and everyone takes a turn with the Diversity Thumb Ball.
