Conversations That Matter: Neurodiversity: Let's Talk About It!
Virtual Event

Description:
Neurodivergent and neurotypical are terminologies that are becoming part of the vocabulary when it comes to workforce inclusion. Neurodivergent refers to individuals who differ in neurological function from what is considered typical or more formally, Neurotypical. Neurodiversity focuses on the range of differences in individual brain function and behavioral traits. In other words, the brain is wired differently. As a result, conditions such as ADHD and Autism aren’t “abnormal”, they are simply variations of the human brain. Varieties of Neurodiversity could include:

  • Autism Spectrum Disorder
  • ADHD
  • Dyspraxia
  • Dyscalculia
  • Dyslexia
  • Tourette’s Syndrome

Our panel brings a variety of perspectives on Neurodiversity and will provide important information on the hiring practices, managing Neurodiverse employees, parenting Neurodiverse children and the power of Neurodiversity.
Come be a part of the conversation on this important and frequently overlooked topic in diversity and inclusion.
