There are many reasons why political work might appeal to people with diverse neurotypes, but neurodivergent folks also face challenges while job searching and in the workplace. Many campaign staffers and political operatives are navigating unaccommodating interview and hiring processes, deciding whether or not to disclose (and when), how to ask for accommodations and which accommodations to ask for, and how to thrive in a field that is often unpredictable and prone to cause burnout.

This space is primarily intended for those with ADHD, Autism, OCD, sensory processing disorders, or any other folks possessing spicy brains, and we will center those voices. The caucus, however, will remain open so others may attend to listen, ask questions, and learn how to make their organizations or campaigns more inclusive for neurodivergent staff.
