In a bid to foster more inclusive workplaces, ACU Co-Lab is hosting a transformative virtual session centred around practises which affirm neurodiversity.
The event aims to shed light on how businesses can create environments that empower neurodivergent individuals, including those with autism, ADHD or dyslexia, by dismantling the existing barriers that are primarily tailored for neurotypical individuals.
In adopting a neurodivergent lens, participants will gain valuable insights into recognising and eliminating obstacles within their workplaces, replacing them with a culture of inclusivity. The session promises to equip attendees with actionable strategies to cultivate practises that affirm neurodiversity within their own organisations.
Wednesday 15 November 12.30pm-1.30pm AEDT
This session is tailored for a wide audience, including small business owners, decision-makers, and anyone passionate about creating workplaces that thrive on diversity. Recognising that diversity cultivates stronger environments and more competitive workplaces, this event is designed for individuals eager to make a meaningful impact.
Kathleen McCarthy, the visionary force behind hey!DHD, is set to lead this enlightening session. With a deep understanding of neurodivergent experiences, Kathleen identifies as an autistic ADHD'er who embodies the concept of 'twice exceptional' and lives with spatial sequence synaesthesia. Her passion and expertise converge in her mission to support neurodivergent individuals, providing them with the tools they need for success in both learning and professional settings. Additionally, she partners with workplaces and schools to instil a culture of neurodivergent affirming practice, ensuring inclusivity becomes second nature.
