VRA Webinar: The Value of Neurodiversity in the Workplace

DATE / TIME 30/03/2021
12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


When it comes to inclusion, neurodiversity refers to a world where neurological differences are recognised and valued as any other human variation. It is a frequently used umbrella term to describe people with Dyslexia, Dyspraxia (DCD), Dyscalculia, Autism and ADHD. Approximately 15% of the population have a neurodifference – representing a significant proportion of existing staff, job applicants and customers.

While expectations are growing for organisations to report on, act on, and advocate for individuals with a neurodifference in their workplaces, there remains limited practical advice or real-world experience on how to go about it.

Many organisations want to ‘get it right’ and leverage the unique strengths of neurodiverse talent. But what does that mean in practice?

Hosted by the VRA, in this webinar we are joined by Aidan Healy, CEO of Lexxic. Lexxic is a specialist consultancy who are leaders in the field of neurodiversity in the workplace.

In this webinar we will cover;

  • An introduction to neurodiversity
  • Why senior leaders and organisations invest in neurodiversity
  • How organisations can create an inclusive environment and empower neurodiverse talents
  • What kinds of supports are available?
  • Examples of good practice at an organisational level
