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.
