At Mentra, we're trying to place

neurodiversity at the core of recruiting

in a way that scales, treating every individual's brain as unique and more than just a resume. 


Built by neurodiverse individuals, 

for neurodiverse individuals

In order to make this vision a reality, we need to build a platform centered around neurodiverse candidates and their requirements. To that end, we are in the process of research work with recruiters and candidates to examine and address barriers in the employment process. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, we do not currently have recruiters actively hiring on our website; however, we are using this time to identify and partner with organizations that are excited to hire neurodiverse individuals in the future. This work will help us build a platform that empowers and advocates for meaningful and sustained career pathways for neurodiverse communities.

Here’s an example of mine: My personal experiences with my non-speaking, autistic brother ignited my passion to advocate for disability rights and design a world where my brother can one day find a job. I am a social impact entrepreneur and speaker/advocate for disability empowerment.

I never understood the humanity behind the accessibility movement until hearing Jhillika’s story about her autistic brother Vicky. I saw a chance to contribute to real change in our society. And that is something I’ll never turn down!
