Neurodiversity 1-0-1 provides a great introduction to neurodiversity in the workplace and has been created by both psychologists and neurodivergent individuals themselves. It’s also delivered by neurodivergent facilitators. It’s estimated that 20% of the world is neurodiverse, which means it’s likely that 20% of your workforce will be neurodiverse too. It’s really important that all employees understand neurodiversity, including what it is, how to recognize it and how they can effectively support their neurodivergent colleagues both remotely and in the workplace. The session will be interactive, using mentimeter to do polls and short exercises.

Section 4: Q&A
Speaker: Emily Banks is the CEO of Enna, which she founded 3 years ago, inspired by her neurodiverse family. She has ADHD, her Dad is autistic, her older brother is autistic, and another brother is dyslexic. At university she realized the struggles they faced completing application forms and conducting interviews, as do millions of other neurodivergent job-seekers around the globe. She founded Enna to educate employers on the value that neurodiversity brings to their organizations, whilst connecting neurodivergent job-seekers to job opportunities with neurodiversity-friendly employers.
