Neurodiversity

Neurodiversity refers to the natural range of differences in human brain function. We all have different brains, different ways of thinking and behaving.

Neurodiversity: Why You Need it

Neurodiversity refers to the natural range of differences in human brain function. We all have different brains, different ways of thinking and behaving. For some individuals within your organisation, that way of thinking may come with a label, ‘dyslexic’ for example, but those without a label are unique in their approach too. To build a truly inclusive culture in your organisation you need to consider, and allow for, how every individual accesses, and can thrive in, the workplace. Understanding neurodiversity is the key to enabling this.
