Long-time disabilities advocate, Los Angeles County Commissioner, and
businesswoman, Cathy Gott, launches The Rad Lab, a consulting firm whose mission
is focused on the creation of high quality programs for neurodiverse individuals. At its
core, The Rad Lab is centered around the values of radical collaboration and
philanthropy. Consultative services include an invitation for people to “take a seat at a
table” by joining one of their virtual labs. Current areas of focus are Housing, Employment, Self-Determination, Legislative, and Community Integration.
One of the most exciting opportunities in The Rad Lab is the call to action to Become a
Catalyst. The Rad Lab will be awarding “molecular” grants to neurodiverse individuals
each year who demonstrate leadership and inspire others to live more independently
through their actions. The application process will open on January 1, 2022 to
individuals 18+ who reside in California or Pennsylvania for a $250 grant. More information about the selection process can be found on the website.
Cathy Gott, and her husband, Jim Gott, a retired MLB Pitcher, are the parents of two
adult sons on the autism spectrum . They have worked tirelessly and are deeply
dedicated to bettering the lives of those with developmental differences.
