Celebrating Neurodiversity in the Workplace

Wednesday, 23 March 2022

10:00 - 11:30 GMT

About the event

 The subject of ED&I has been front and centre for so many organisations but in looking at embracing diversity, we are often excluding a portion of the workforce from our organisational strategy and policies.

As neurodifferences are often stigmatised, invisible, or masked, this group often doesn't have the representation of other groups on the D&I agenda. And we believe this group has so much to contribute to performance, creativity, and innovation within organisations. So, what does a neuro-inclusive organisation look like in practice? How might we get started?

We are excited to host a panel on Neurodiversity in the Workplace. In this session, we will cover practical and real-world experience on how organisations can be more neuro-inclusive. While every organisation and culture are different, we have found that many of the core questions and building blocks can overlap.

Specifically, we will cover:

  • An introduction to neurodiversity in the workplace

  • Employers' duty of care under the law

  • Getting buy-in from senior leaders

  • Good practice examples of positive adjustments from individuals

  • Good practice examples at an organisational level

As this is a panel discussion, there will be lots of time for questions and interaction with you!

This is a free online event via Zoom.
