Yesterday an insightful session on Neurodiversity was held at TMC by Lexxic, a group that has been sharing knowledge about Neurodiversity for over 15 years. This webinar was held in connection with our focus on Mental health during this quarter. The event shed light on the importance of embracing diverse neurological profiles and creating an inclusive work environment for everyone. Starting with the definition of neurodiversity and how to talk about it, the speaker Helen Musgrove delved into various aspects of neurodiversity, sharing valuable knowledge. After the session, we continued the discussions, and the participants shared their experiences and thoughts.
Did you know that approx. 1 in 7 people has neurodivergence? This was only one of many interesting facts we learned. We explored various aspects of neurodiversity, including strategies for creating inclusive work environments, accommodating different communication styles, and promoting a culture of understanding and support. The session sparked engaging discussions and challenged our preconceptions, paving the way for positive change.
We will now do our best to carry the knowledge and insights gained from this webinar forward, spreading awareness and advocating for inclusion within our professional networks and beyond.
