Up to 75% of women with ADHD go undiagnosed until adulthood with life damaging consequences, creating what has been called a “lost generation of women.” Those who are diagnosed face unique challenges due to lack of scientific knowledge, resources and public understanding. Kaleidoscope Society aims to connect and empower these women, while dispelling stigma and changing public perception of the condition.
Supporters can vote online to help Kaleidoscope Society Win Internet’s Top Honor until April 18 at vote.webbyawards.com. Winners will be announced on Tuesday, April 23, 2019.
