Event description

Description

How do we unlock the power of divergent thinkers in the workplace?

What are the benefits of #diverseminds in the workplace? How do we create welcoming environments where different types of brains can thrive? What are the barriers those with ADHD, autism, dyslexia, dyspraxia and more face when it comes to recruitment, retention and promotion?

These are the type of questions that weren’t being asked or talked about this time last year, so we decided to do something about it. In March 2018, #DiverseMinds, the first ever neurodiversity conference for the creative industries hit the scene.

#DiverseMinds is back, this time bigger and better. Our theme this year will be about ‘providing support’. We feel that 2018’s event got the conversation started, enhanced understanding and helped reduce stigma. We didn’t spend much time talking about the very real challenges that some people are facing in the workplace and beyond. We want to provide support to:

- People who are actually ND

- Parents of children who are ND

- Those managing ND people in their teams

With many more!

This is a conference about ‘neurodiversity’ and our working definition of what this encompasses is ADHD, ADD, Autism, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Dyscalculia and Tourettes. We recognise that the boundaries of what neurodiversity constitutes are not universally agreed and likely to change over time. We are open to alternative perspectives for future events and recognise that the topics discussed in March may well be relevant to some of these groups of people too.
