Supporting Neurodiversity in the Workplace

Supporting Neurodiversity in the Workplace

April 2020 | Central London

With the business case for diversity in the workplace now universally recognised, employers hoping to achieve true inclusivity cannot exclude such a significant demographic as the neurodiverse. This includes members of the population who live with forms of largely innate neurodivergence, such as autism, ADHD or dyslexia. A lack of understanding has left a significant proportion of recruitment processes and workplaces being designed only with neurotypicals in mind, however, studies show that likely more than 10% of the population is considered neurodivergent, with this figure likely to increase.

The Supporting Neurodiversity in the Workplace event in partnership with the British Association for Supported Employment will enable delegates to learn about simple changes that can be made to their workplaces in order to create a truly inclusive company culture, and boost the productivity of this growing demographic.
