Length:        60-90 mins

Group Size:  5 - 35

Audience:     All employees, but particularly relevant to People Managers with neurodivergent team members


In a recent survey carried out by the CIPD, over one third of neurodivergent employees surveyed said their experience at work in relation to their neurodivergence had had a negative impact on their mental wellbeing.  Lack of understanding around differences in communication styles, how we process information or experience the world can mean some neurodivergent employees feel excluded and not psychologically safe at work. This course gives attendees an introduction to neurodiversity and discusses the impact neurodivergent conditions can have on mental health and on an individual's ability to flourish in the workplace. Attendees will gain an understanding of how they can create positive change to make their workplaces and teams more neuroinclusive.
