Accessibility Cafe - Neurodiversity and Workplace Inclusion April 28 2021

Neurodiversity in the workplace exampleJoin us for the next Accessibility Café!

Presented by the Queen’s Human Rights and Equity Office and the Queen’s University Built Environment Advisory Group (BEAG) .

We are living in a time of increased numbers and awareness about individuals with neuro-sensitives and special needs, such as ADHD. In fact, 1 in 8 people are considered neurodiverse but fewer than 50% know it.  But these individuals can be high energy, out of the box thinkers, excel in a crisis, and be bold problem solvers. Not only is designing to be inclusive the right thing to do, there is a compelling business case for it as well. Investigate the various aspects of neurodiversity and explore how to create spaces that are more physically and culturally inclusive for people with a wide spectrum of neurological conditions to allow them to thrive.

When: Wednesday, April 28, 2:00 - 3:00pm

Where: via Zoom
