A human-centered design approach.

Based on our research initiated at Georgia Tech, the team has learned what data is instrumental to making or breaking a good job fit. We have spent over 2 years understanding the autism community to intimately understand pain points and success factors in a job position. Today, we are working with employers to examine and address barriers in the employment process.
Mentra's four profile areas ensure a successful fit.

Our founding story

Mentra's founder Jhillika Kumar speaks about the barriers faced by neurodiverse individuals during the hiring process, her personal connection to the movement, and why Mentra's mission matters now more than ever.

People are talking about Mentra.

Mentra is a place where I don't need to hide the fact that I'm autistic, where I find myself much freer to show people what I'm capable of. Recruiters are talking to me because I'm talented, not as if I'm a PR trophy for them for offering opportunities to an autistic person.
