To address talent attraction and retention challenges with respect to diverse talent in the accounting profession, this study examines the intersection of neurodiversity and the accounting employment experience. Through interviews and online questionnaires of neurodivergent accountants in the U.S., we found a general lack of perceived organizational inclusion among neurodivergent accountants in our study, evidence supporting the existence of a positive impact of perceived organizational inclusion on individuals’ perceptions of their job performance, and key antecedents to perceived organizational inclusion. We report the lived experiences of neurodivergent accountants by amplifying their voices through presentation of oral histories and 37 actionable practices informing future strategies for organizations and leaders in practice.
