Webinar: An introduction to Neurodiversity in the workplace

  • 14th July 2021
  • 14:00 - 15:00
  • Online Event

Overview

When it comes to inclusion, neurodiversity refers to a world where neurological differences are recognised and respected as any other human variation. This includes people with dyslexia, dyspraxia (DCD), dyscalculia, Autism and ADHD. Approximately 15% of the population of the UK are neurodiverse - representing a significant proportion of existing staff, job applicants and customers.

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. When it comes to inclusion, neurodiversity refers to a world where neurological differences are recognised and respected as any other human variation. This includes people with dyslexia, dyspraxia (DCD), dyscalculia, Autism and ADHD. Approximately 15% of the population of the UK are neurodiverse - representing a significant proportion of existing staff, job applicants and customers.

As neurodifferences are often invisible or masked, this group often doesn't have the prevalence 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 neuroinclusive organisation look like in practice? How might we get started?
