What is neurodiversity?

Foothold webinar: Neurodiversity in the workplace

Thursday 12 January 2023
11:30 - 13:00 UK time

Like us, you’ll know that a successful business depends on everyone in the organisation being able to make the most of their talents and perform at their best.

But when you think of your own workplace, do you feel this is the case for neurodivergent employees?

For instance…

If you have a diagnosis or believe you may be neurodivergent, you might be finding it difficult to progress in your career if you don’t ‘fit’ with how things are done.

If you have colleagues who are neurodivergent, perhaps you feel your working relationships could be more productive if you understood how you can best collaborate or communicate with them.

And if you’re an engineering employer, maybe you feel there’s more you can do to support neurodivergent employees to make full use of their individual capabilities?

By joining this second webinar in our 2-part series to mark the launch of our brand-new Differently Wired Hub, you’ll build your understanding of the opportunities that neurodiversity can bring to your organisation – so that you can unleash your own potential, or support your colleagues to achieve theirs.

Empowering you to start engineering your way, and take your organisation to new heights.
