New webinar: How to create a workspace that celebrates and supports neurodiverse teams

Neurodiversity and Neurodivergent as Autism spectrum disorder or Dyslexia ADHD Tourette Syndrome ASC,Dyspraxia Dyscalculia as a mental health brain diversity and psychology with 3D illustration elements.

This webinar has now taken place and can be viewed here.

Often, when leaders look at supporting neurodivergent colleagues at work, they talk about making “reasonable adjustments”. However, despite best intentions, this approach can make people feel singled out. Employers need to focus on creating a unified culture of support which doesn’t single individuals out and which benefits everyone. But this is easier said than done.
