Neurodiversity, for example ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) describes the idea that people experience and interact with the world around them in many different ways.
With diagnosis of conditions like ADHD on the rise, many of us feel relieved to be able to label and understand how we see the world differently.
And with more awareness and a commitment to DE and I (diversity, equity and inclusion) policies, workplaces are doing more to improve their support.
Whilst policies can be helpful, what we are aiming for is the ability to create supportive workplaces where everyone’s difference is in itself a valued part of the team, people can play to their strengths and feel safe to be themselves.
But how? It can feel scary and complex to navigate. Many of us are doing our best without the knowledge, skills or confidence to know if we’re doing the right things. There isn’t a typical workplace and there isn’t a typical person with ADHD.
Join us on Thursday 30 November and hear the brilliant Anj Cairns share her story of her ADHD diagnosis, the ups and downs and how she’s adjusted to what she needs for successful working life.
Now she coaches others, sharing her experience to provide practical advice about creating that safe space where everyone can thrive.
Whether you are neuro diverse, or want to be a better ally to colleagues, join us and you will leave with:
