Many organisations have statements in support of equity, diversity and inclusion but can your organisation truly be inclusive if it does not consider its neurodiverse population?
It is estimated that more than 15% of the population is neurodiverse, with conditions such as dyslexia, dyspraxia, ADHD and autism. With the current climate of fierce competition for employees, not only are organisations missing out on talent, they are also at risk of losing that diversity of thought without being neurodiversity aware.
This Personnel Today webinar, in association with Culture Amp, explores the issues surrounding neurodiversity in the workplace and examines what HR professionals can do to address the barriers faced by those with neurodiverse conditions and the steps to fostering an inclusive environment.
Editor Rob Moss is joined by Culture Amp’s senior people scientist Stephanie Kukoyi, who has experience providing a number of services in the field of neurodiversity including coaching, diagnostics, workplace assessments and awareness sessions, as well as Leanne Maskell, a qualified ADHD coach and director of coach training company ADHD Works.

- Neurodiverse conditions and how they affect people in the workplace
