Neurodiversity in the workplace - Thinking differently
Neurodiversity is the term that refers to the naturally occurring variation in the way our brains work. It is commonly associated with a series of conditions or differences such as dyslexia, ADHD, dyspraxia, autism and others. Recent studies suggest that as many as 1 in 7 people in the UK are neurodivergent, meaning that organisations that fail to meet the needs of their neurodivergent staff, customers and service users are neglecting a significant demographic. Although there are challenges associated with these differences, there are also many strengths.

In this webinar, VinciWorks’ Director of Learning Nick Henderson and Skill Boosters’ Content Designer Maurizio Caldera will explore some of the many facets of neurodiversity, the challenges faced by neurodivergent people in the workplace and the opportunities for employers that take a whole-organisation approach to supporting neurodivergent staff, customers and service users.

The webinar will cover:

• What is Neurodiversity?
• The challenges that Neurodivergent thinkers face in the workplace and what that tells us about the broader working environment
• The benefits of recruiting from a neurodiverse talent pool
• What is 'diversity of thought' and how can it be successfully applied?
• Interviews with neurodivergent individuals on their personal experiences
• Short scenario clips and interactive polls on what we can do to support neurodivergent people in each example
• How to support colleagues who care for someone who is neurodivergent
