About the event

Thank you for your interest in this event. This event has now taken place, and though registrations are closed, if you would like to watch the recording then you can access it here (along with the other NCW 2024 event recordings!). We hope you enjoy.

How confident do you feel at work?

As neurodivergent women, we encounter the same systemic barriers in the workplace as neurotypical women, such as the gender pay gap and the glass ceiling. We also face additional unique challenges which can contribute to difficulties in navigating our careers, impacting our overall sense of achievement.

Join us for an insightful and uplifting discussion where we will be exploring the careers of neurodivergent women, looking at what we can do to transform our work lives by empowering ourselves.

Our chair and speakers have a wealth of valuable knowledge, lived experience and expertise from working across a variety of industries. We will explore a range of subjects including:

  • Building confidence and resilience

  • Developing your self esteem

  • Advocating for yourself

  • The importance of your  support system

  • Navigating challenging situations

You will leave this session with practical tips, advice and hopefully feeling encouraged.

This is a free online event via Zoom.
