Join Dr. Sonya Malone and Lindsay Plaisant for a talk on neurodiversity. In recent years, organizations have committed to increasing opportunities for diverse employees to be successful in the workplace. It is imperative that employers consider neurodiverse people among the other equity-deserving groups. Population studies tell us that 1 in 5 people are neurodiverse! These folks have unique ways of interpreting and interacting with the environment and people around them with impacts on thinking, learning, emotional regulation, and behaviour. Now is the time to identify how organizations, leaders, and colleagues alike can support neurodiverse people in the workplace with departmental policies, routine practices, and person-specific strategies. This presentation and the accompanying toolkit offer concrete ideas to put into practice in YOUR workplace.
