Recent studies have shown that 15-20% of the population is neurodiverse. Neurodiversity includes many conditions, including autism spectrum disorder (ASD), attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), down syndrome, intellectual disabilities, mental health conditions, sensory processing disorders, and many more. Studies found that neurodiverse teams are 30% more productive than neurotypical ones. However, neurodiverse people are more likely to be unemployed than people with any other disability and can experience significant discrimination issues in the workplace. This workshop helps educate participants about neurodiverse identities and how to create an inclusive workplace climate that is welcoming of people with various abilities and disabilities. Participants will be able to: ● Understand the meaning of Neurodiversity and related terms ● Explore the wide variety of identities that are include under the Neurodiversity umbrella ● Challenge typical expectations and assumptions that create barriers for neurodivergent employees ● Implement accessible and neuro-inclusion best practices
