Webinar: Embracing Neurodiversity in the Workplace
Did you know that some experts estimate up to 10% of the human population have neurodiverse conditions (such as autism, ADHD and dyslexia), and that luminaries like Steve Jobs, Steven Spielberg, Mozart, Picasso and Marilyn Monroe were all reported to have been neurodiverse?
When organizations view neurodiversity as simply another way in which normal brains operate and hire neurodiverse employees, they can gain a competitive edge as these employees bring beneficial talents, perspectives and skills that can enhance the workplace in many ways.
In this 60-minute webinar, Tim Reed, a shareholder with Ogletree Deakins, explores what neurodiversity is and the benefits of embracing neurodiverse employees. Tim is an advocate of diversity and inclusion, with a particular interest in issues relating to neurodiversity as it relates to the workplace, and speaks and writes regularly on these topics.
Attendees learn about:
- Recruiting, interviewing and hiring for neurodiversity;
- Successful onboarding for neurodiverse employees;
- Providing effective reasonable accommodations;
- Performance management that boosts neurodiverse employee achievement;
- And more!
