Jenara Nerenberg

Jenara Nerenberg grew up in San Francisco and lectures widely on the future of psychology, empathy and neurodiversity, sensitivity, neuroscience research, design, leadership, and reframing media narratives and is the founder of The Neurodiversity Project. After leaving her performing arts high school at the age of 16, she graduated from UC Berkeley and the Harvard School of Public Health and was later selected as a “brave new idea” presenter by the Aspen Institute for her work on reframing mental differences. Her favorite activity is the one-on-one interview -- with NYTimes bestselling authors she hosts for live events or with homeless women and men she grew up talking with and serving at the Glide Memorial Health Clinic. Jenara publishes widely on topics ranging from mental health to suburban life to gender bias and belonging and community. She lived in Asia for six years and began her journalism career there with CNN. Her interviews have appeared in Fast Company, New York Magazine, and Susan Cain’s Quiet Revolution, as well as the Garrison Institute, the UC Berkeley Greater Good Science Center, and KQED. Jenara is also a frequent event host, workshop facilitator, and speaker for institutions including the Stanford Graduate School of Business, OZY Media, the Tahirih Justice Center, and Park Day School.
