Lyric’s best-selling business ethics book, “Workplace Neurodiversity Rising”, was named a “Trend for 2023” and has been praised in Forbes as “an excellent ‘how to manual’ based on lived experience and professional competence”. Today, Lyric continues their popular blog, and consults for organizations on topics relating to neuroinclusion at work.
