WorkPride Panel: Neurodiversity - How Can Organisations Create a Supportive Environment for Their Neurodiverse Employees?

Neurodiversity was coined in 1998 by sociologist Judy Singer. It refers to a social model of disability, in which societal barriers are the main contributing factor affecting people, namely in terms of learning, attention, mood, sociability and other mental functions. 
The LGBTQ+ community is already a target for discrimination when it comes to recruitment, development and retention within organizations worldwide. Add disability or Neurodiversity into the mix, it gets even harder for some individuals to secure a job and pursue a meaningful career.  
This panel aims to explore the role of neurodiversity in members of the LGBTQ+ community and what strategies are available for organizations to help reduce the prejudice associated with hiring and maintaining such individuals.
