NeuroEquality Impact Team
Discrimination throughout history has leaned heavily on weaponizing normal and natural states of being against women. Stigmas associated with diverse neurological and emotional presentations create barriers for all women. It is critical that we empower educators, employers, and all Utahns to understand and promote universally designed environments. As part of "identity" on the Rim of the BWF Wheel of Change, this Impact Team is tasked with working with the leaders or a representative of each spoke to ensure that neurodiversity is considered in all aspects of A Bolder Way Forward.

Bold Vision & Goals
We, the NeuroEquality Impact Team, are dedicated to advancing neurological equality for those who identify as women through a steadfast commitment to continuous improvement, comprehensive resources, and unwavering advocacy. Our definition of NeuroEquality is: "Individuals with all neurological presentations have equal access to prosperity across all aspects of life."
Our core values guide our actions:
- Empowerment: We empower women to experience neuroequality through self-awareness, engaging with resources, self-advocacy, and self-acceptance.
- Advocacy: We advocate for institutional reforms that promote NeuroEquality, universal design, and access to resources within systems and structures.
- Education: We strive to educate the public about the importance of neurological equity, dismantling stereotypes and biases that hinder progress.
- Collaboration: We foster collaboration among organizations, educators, resource providers, and women to create a more inclusive and diverse community.
Together, we work tirelessly to break down barriers, challenge systemic biases, and create a future where women are equally represented and valued.
