Neurodiversity at Work (17th June 2019)

Location: Bush House East Wing, King’s College London, 44-46 Aldwych, WC2B 4LL, London

Neurodiversity At Work aims to bring together business and neurodiverse talent from every walk of life to create better businesses that employ, engage and support their neurodiverse staff, creating better led, more productive and happier workplaces for all.

Join us at this symposium to explore and promote how we are collaborating with industry, academia and the many groups and organisations working in this area to ensure that neurodiverse-talented people are actively and better engaged in business and society.

We aim to have every staff handbook to include a section on Neurodiversity such that everybody in every organisation can be better engaged with their neurodiverse colleagues, more neurodiverse people can be employed in fruitful, rewarding and well-suited roles for the neurodiverse talents held, such that companies can be better led with a fully-engaged and diverse workforce.

We are operating this on a sponsored, not-for-profit basis but we have to cover costs; there are tickets for all. Neurodiverse and unwaged – attend the symposium for free!
We have an extensive programme presented by business leaders, leading academics, and neurodiverse-talented people from business, the arts and media worlds.

And… we’re looking for sponsors who want to be part of the-next-big-thing and do good!
