Why Are We Hiring Neurodivergents?

Stephen DeStefani, Wells Fargo Technology Business Services executive and leader of the Neurodiversity Program, calls the program the most rewarding work of his career. Participants are placed into strategic professional technology roles, such as a systems engineer, developer, or data analyst. They also join a cross-functional agile team that includes a designated support system of coaches and mentors. Long, for example, has been working on creating pages to help detect suspicious transactions that may be fraudulent or noncompliant. He learned a new programming language, C#, and leveraged this with his existing coding language knowledge to propose and implement a solution for reducing production time in aggregating data. “Everyone involved in this effort is so passionate about it, and what we’ve seen is remarkable,” DeStefani said. “Some of our participants have been able to learn new coding languages in one to three weeks, compared to the industry standard of six months. They’ve shown an aptitude and eagerness to learn and build the skills required to succeed on their team, and in some cases, even become subject matter experts in new technology.” “This program is about providing meaningful opportunities for people with diverse abilities and creating a strategic advantage for Wells Fargo by bringing extraordinarily valuable, unique skills and perspectives to our company from a rich, untapped talent pool,” said Saul Van Beurden, head of Wells Fargo Technology. “Most initiatives are done from the top down, which is good, but not always in tune with the members of the population,” Lieberman said “We work together to provide different perspectives and build a sensitive and well-grounded approach to making sure everything makes sense to us. “There’s a common perception that we’re all children, and there’s a small but growing perception like we’re all superheroes waiting to burst forward with incredible powers, and neither of those are true,” he added. “We’re people who have different abilities, and there’s a lot of talent in the community that is untapped.”
