Event Details

an interactive evening to highlight the benefits of employing people on the spectrum

This event is being jointly presented by a number of people who work with those with autism along with guest speakers with their stories to tell. There will also be interactive elements to the session to highlight some of the obstacles facing people with autism and some of the simple adjustments that employers can put in place which can make a huge difference. Delegates will get a variety of views and interactive experiences to draw from at this session to help them better understand the benefits of employing people on the spectrum.


Join us for refreshments and informal networking from 1800.

The event will start at 1830 and end at approximately 2100* (please note the end time is dependent on volume of questions).


We are thankful to York St John University for supporting this event, by hosting this event in Temple Hall.


The evening will start with informal networking and refreshments, with our seminar running from 1830-2100 with a break partway through.

During the seminar you will:

  • have an opportunity to explore a personality questionnaire, to map out strengths and difficulties of those on the autistic spectrum and to understand how sometimes just small adjustments in the workplace are all that are needed.
  • establish the fact and fiction of what is autism - high functioning autism
  • experience sensory processing idioms, executive functioning and hear personal stories from those involved with autism in different ways
  • have an opportunity to explore the support from Access to Work, Disability Confident, employment support providers and coaching/assessing organisations


We are grateful to all those involved in this evening’s event, including our Partners PRO Autism, our guest speakers include:

Cheryl Winter is Director of Genius Within providing diagnostics, workplace needs assessments and coaching for all Neuro Diversity.

Jonathan Vincent is MA Education Course Lead, School of Education at York St John University and lead for PRO Autism, a group aiming to improve Prospects, Recruitment and Opportunities for autistic adults.


If you are involved in people leadership/management, HR, L&D or coaching in the workplace then please do come along.

This is a free event for both CIPD and non-CIPD Members. Business Owners/Managers are therefore very welcome to book.

Early booking recommended as our events are often fully subscribed.


This event is free to attend, however, we do reserve the right to charge a £10 no-show fee for those who are unable to attend who do not contact us with apologies (except in exceptional circumstances). 

All of our branch events are organised by volunteers who give up their time freely to provide CPD opportunities for others in North Yorkshire, events are funded through branch funds, and our speakers (who at most receive expenses only) give up their time freely to prepare and present their sessions. With this in mind, if you do book on an event and find you’re no longer able to attend – please email and give your apologies to those involved with the event – we really do appreciate this, especially in advance where possible as this might allow us to avoid catering wasteage, but if it’s an unavoidable last minute cancellation we’d still like to hear from you.
