Neurodiversity: Building Innovation through Diversity & Inclusion
About this Event
Who should attend?
This event is ideal for senior IT and digital specialists, HR professionals, hiring managers and C-suite executives.
Recruiting truly diverse teams offers clear benefits for employers, and in a skills short environment extending talent pools is a priority for many. Figures suggest that up to 15% of the population is affected by dyslexia alone; the subject of neurodiversity covers this and many others such as ADHD and Autism.
We are fortunate to be working with leading specialists in the area of neurodiversity who will be talking about best practice and answering questions about what this looks like in real world scenarios. This session will have something for everyone who is interested in neurodiversity – from what it means and incorporates, how you can make some simple changes and why you should be taking these steps.
Tea, coffee and breakfast goodies will hopefully help fuel the conversation!
Key takeaways include:
1. Find out what neurodiversity is and why it should be on your agenda
2. Understand what you are missing by failing to reach the neurodiverse talent pool
3. Understand the benefit of neurodiversity in building the best technical and design teams
4. Learn how to create a more inclusive environment. Make some simple changes to your attraction and on boarding processes.
