Ottawa and District 11.17.21 VIRTUAL Neurodiversity l Harnessing the Gifts of All Human Potential
Our world is calling for new perspectives and approaches to create a more sustainable and humane world. Future innovation requires tapping into all humans’ potential, particularly people of different neurotypes, those whose brains inherently think and interpret the world differently. We need to learn to harness and enhance the innate gifts of people with autism spectrum disorder and Asperger’s, dyslexia, dyspraxia, ADD/ADHD, Tourette syndrome, or social processing disorder, to name a few.
Together we will explore how neurodiversity requires us to rethink HR practices, the work environment, culture and job design, and our notion of leadership, and how organizations can benefit from learning to leverage the gifts associated with various neurotypes.
- Understand of the gifts that come with divergent neurotypes as well as the accommodations to consider to enable their success.
- Explore practical measures organizations can take to accommodate neurodivergent employees, ultimately helping your employees be more successful at work. We will explore changes in talent acquisition, onboarding, development and culture shifts.
- Challenge HR and leadership thinking of diversity leadership and how we can create systems to be more inclusive to various forms of neurotypes.
