Neurodiversity Employment Network (NEN) Event

VFES was thrilled to join and support Philadelphia’s Neurodiversity Employment Network as a sponsor for their 5 Year Celebration! The Network connects employers, academics, providers, vendors, job seekers, and other allies throughout Greater Philadelphia to enable neurodivergent individuals to gain meaningful employment – a mission that aligns so deeply with our work. The celebratory spirit and joy of coming together was only topped by Dr. Grace’s joy when she saw Vanguard School alumni, who provided live entertainment with the Rubato School of Music. Congratulations to Neurodiversity Employment Network – we are thrilled to be part of this important work in our community.
