An Organizational Psychologist and Behavioral Consultant by Profession. I believe that it is the perspective that matters and it’s amazing to see the countless perspectives there could be to any situation. Having had a successful career of over 2 decades into Corporate Training and Competency Assessment and as an Executive Coach, having coached 1000s of professionals to transition into new roles and grow in their careers, I decided to shift gears and make life more purposeful. Am passionate about driving neurodiversity and inclusion in the workplace to ensure those unique perspectives are not missed out, that make a difference and create the magical solutions! For many others like my nephew on the spectrum “What Next after education” is the question we want to have answers to, at Orchvate.
Who We Are
We are a social enterprise building and running a robust ecosystem for neurodivergents (NDs) to flourish. While our goal is sustainable and meaningful employment for NDs, we found that in order to achieve this we had to build a bridge between the islands that exist among ND individuals, academia, companies & NGOs.
This requires a unique combination of the top-down approach (that’s begun recently with ND hiring initiatives in MNCs) and our bottom-up approach (beginning with the families of NDs to friend circles & interest groups to inclusive schools to colleges to training institutes to companies).
We started as a training & coaching company focused on creating ND inclusive workplaces. We soon found gaps along the entire ‘supply chain’ with companies wanting to hire ND talent and NDs looking for jobs, neither able to find each other and, the rare times they do, failing to build a sustainable relationship. That is the bridge we strive to build and maintain.
We are a neurodiverse team that include corporate leaders & psychologists who have stepped out of their highly successful careers to drive this.
