Neurodiversity at the Workplace in India | Rahul Jindal | The Much Much Show Ep 2

In this episode, we speak to Rahul Jindal (Director, Google India) about what it means to be truly inclusive in a professional setting, among other things. Rahul shares his knowledge about reasonable accommodations and talks about his advocacy work as well as raising funds for Neurodiversity inclusion.

Rahul has extensive experience in this space running the Google India Employee Resource Group 'Disability Alliance,' which aims to mainstream conversations around, and lead the narrative on, disability accommodations, employment and Google's DEI charter.

Rahul is also a parent advocate and venture capitalist actively backing inclusive businesses and startups in the disability space.
