Neurodiversity in the Workplace - Part 2

LSA Disability Navigator Workshop
Thursday, July 11, 2024
10:00 AM-12:00 PM
Neurodiversity is the new hot topic in the realm of disability inclusion and accessibility—and with good reason. A significant percentage of people are now recognized as having neurotypes that are not well supported by societal norms and our collective understanding of how to communicate across and support neurodiversity is still developing. Fortunately researchers, educators, and advocates who identify as neurodivergent are contributing to a growing body of best practices. Join the LSA Faculty & Staff Disability Navigators to learn about neurodiversity and how we can all start creating more neuroinclusive workplaces.

In Neurodiversity in the Workplace: Part 2, participants will:

1. Learn about communication best practices between neurotypes.

2. Explore practical examples of how to foster neuroinclusive workplaces, including workspace design, meeting facilitation, and supervision strategies.

3. Exchange advice with fellow participants and generate a plan to start applying neuroinclusive practices right away.

4. Obtain a reference guide to implementing best practices in your workplace.

Audience: This is a beginner-level workshop open to any LSA employee, including our student employees. LSA employees receive priority access, so while external guests are welcome to register they will be waitlisted and moved off the waitlist as space allows.
