MadWorld Forum and DMA Talent's Neurodiversity Initiative
03 Sep 2019
DMA Talent are delighted to be collaborating with the Mad World Summit to promote best practice in the workplace.
The Mad World Summit is a global conference and exhibition dedicated to making a difference to mental health and wellbeing in the workplace. It’s a unique event where early movers and visionary pioneers are working together to advance the agenda, promote best practice and engage new voices.
The event will take place on 9 October 2019, the day before World Mental Health Day, at 133 Houndsditch, Liverpool Street, London, EC3A 7AH.
DMA Talent will be running a free to attend workshop at the event from 10:50 – 11:50 focused on “Neurodiversity in the workplace – embracing and encouraging different ways of thinking”. Matthew Trerise, who runs DMA Talent’s Neurodiversity Initiative workshops, will facilitate the workshop.
In the session you’ll explore neurodiversity in the workplace, how this relates to mental health, strengths, difficulties, the business case for neurodiversity, and receive guidance around reasonable adjustments you can make to recruitment procedures and workplace environments.
The workshop is recommended for anyone who identifies as neurodivergent, line managers, HR personnel, colleagues, and anyone with a personal connection to someone this relates to.
