 Historically, the workplace has not been set up to be neurodivergent-friendly. Many employers unknowingly have environments, processes, and policies in place that favor neurotypical thinking styles.

Furthermore, nearly 2 out of 3 employees say they’ve experienced backlash from their coworkers when a private detail of their life became known at work. Mental health issues, neurodivergence, and disabilities were among the types of details commonly exposed.

Join us July 7th at 11:00am EST, 4:00pm BST, neurodiversity ally! In this virtual session, we will be discussing:

– What factors relating to the workplace might provoke or exacerbate mental health challenges for people of minority neurotypes?
– How can any manager, HR professional, DEI professional ensure that the mental health of employees of minority neurotypes is respected and supported?
