Accessibility Café - The New Inclusivity: Neurodiversity and Workplace Inclusion

Join us for the next Accessibility Café on Wednesday, April 28, 2:00 - 3:00pm! Presented by the Queen’s Human Rights and Equity Office and the Queen’s University Built Environment Advisory Group (BEAG) .

Abstract:

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. 

Speaker:

Kay Sargent, Senior Principal | Director of WorkPlace

Learning Objectives:

  1. Learn the different neuro-sensitives and how they impact individuals
  2. Understand the areas of sensitivity and the potential design solutions to address them
  3. Explore the benefits of designing a space that addresses the needs of all and is inclusive
  4. Learn how to be proactive with your design and policies to create an inclusive work environment
