What is Neurodiversity Pride Day

Celebrate Your Own Way, On Neurodiversity Pride Day.

Neurodiversity Pride Day, each year on June 18th, we celebrate neurodivergent uniqueness. we take a moment to reflect what we are proud for, turn the page of a difficult past or present, and rejoice in the fact, that there is only one person like yourself. And that that, is how its supposed to be.

For Organizations

Celebrate your neurodivergent teammembers

Most organizations accomodating a neurodiverse workforce, become market leaders; 35% of CEOs are dyslectic or ADHD, and Autistics found often to be the key to true innovation. If your organization is supported too by the power of neurodiversity, we invite you to celebrate Neurodiversity Pride Day, and spread some warmth to neurodivergents working in your teams.

“One of us. Gobble Gobble. We accept you. One of us.”

Celebrate yourself.

This day is created by neurodivergents, to celebrate self-acceptance of ourselves, and appreciation towards our kind; those who are neurologically unlike most others. For one day, we shift our focus to how we make society more beautiful and vital, in spite of any of the struggles we face daily. For one day, we pride ourselves with having the courage to keep being ourselves, regardless of the negative stereotypes and efforts to minimize our uniqueness.

You, be you.

For All

Celebrate those who are most unlike yourself

Dyslexia existed before books were written, ADHD and Autistic genes were active 10.000 years ago, but in current society we are a minority that fights hard to be accepted as we are naturally. Every person in this world, knows neurodivergents, in their friends, teams, family, and most love at least one of them. On this day, neurodivergents stand in defiance of those societal forces wanting us gone. Stand with us.

Be Kind.

For Organizers:

There are the Three Rules for organizers. Activities that do not adhere to these three rules, are not part of Neurodiversity Pride Day:

  • No racism or discrimination of any kind allowed. A world that is better for all, is a world where any person has the ability to thrive, regardless of which skincolor, culture or neurotype they are born into. Therefore, we stand with all minorities reclaiming their pride.
  • No sad stories, on this day; you can do that on every other day, June 18th is created to celebrate the reasons giving us our pride.
  • Nothing about us without us: in each activity, a neurodivergent needs to have a role. Allthough celebrated worldwide, its a day for and by neurodivergents, and those who love them.
