Join DMA Talent at their next neurodiversity workshop, taking place online on Wednesday 26 August
Om Wednesday 26 August 2020, DMA Talent's Neurodiversity Initiative returns with another Neurodiversity workshop run by autism specialist Matthew Trerise.
The initiative aims to educate businesses on supporting neurodiverse talent in the workplace. According to the National Autistic Society, there are around 700,000 people on the autism spectrum in the UK and, of those, just 16% of autistic adults are in full-time, paid employment. With DMA Talent's help, businesses can learn how to become more 'neurodiverse friendly', ensuring they are able to choose from a wider talent pool and seek out the most capable individuals for their roles.
It's ideal for those who can use what they learn to implement positive changes in their workplace.
Matt has 15 years' experience working with autistic individuals and during the free-to-attend workshop, you'll explore:
- What autism is
- Neurodiversity in the workplace
- Suggested adjustments for supporting neurodiverse talent, from job advertisements to line management training
When: Wednesday 26 August 2020, 09:00 - 13:00
Where: Online via Zoom
