About live session

Neurodiversity has been defined as the way people interact with the world, and there is no ‘right way’ of thinking, learning and behaving (Forbes, 2022). According to Learning Disability Today, neurodiversity can lead to secondary mental health issues for many individuals, where they may have struggled to meet social expectations, or found difficulties to excel in their careers. Join us for our next London event where we will address these challenges that nearly 20% of the population face, while considering ways in which organisations can be neurodiverse-inclusive, and best practices to attract neurodiverse talent during the hiring process.  

Discussion points/themes:

Creating a neurodiverse-Inclusive workplace
Why representation matters
How to support mental wellbeing
Reasonable adjustments in the recruitment process
The power of terminology – ‘mad’, ‘mental’, ‘crazy’ what to replace these words with
Not a one-size-fits-all approach
