Empowering Neurodivergent Women in the Workplace – A Conference

November 23 @ 09:30 - 13:30

Exploring strengths-based approach to workplace inclusivity, breaking barriers for neuro-divergent women and increasing productivity

The Growing Club CIC is hosting an event to explore the strengths of a neurodiverse workforce, increasing productivity and skills base by addressing barriers faced by neurodivergent women in the workforce.

At this conference we will discuss breaking down barriers for positive change, and explore employers’ role in supporting staff to work to their full potential.

This event, funded by Rosa, is drawing on the insights that The Growing Club have gained from months of speaking with neuro-divergent women about their skills and experiences, and the times these have been supported to fully use their skills.

Who should attend?

  • Employers who are eager to support their neuro-divergent staff and be a part of a positive change
  • Policymakers and researchers interested in driving a policy shift in diversity and inclusion
  • Neuro-divergent women who are unsure of the types of support that have helped others, or want to share their experiences

Event highlights:

  • Speakers and presentations on the research conducted by The Growing Club
  • Breakout groups exploring the research so employers/policymakers can set actions and goals
  • neuro-divergent women sharing personal and professional journeys

Neurodiversity was traditionally seen as mainly a male issue. As a result many women have been left undiagnosed, mis-diagnosed or diagnosed much later in life. And there is significantly less understanding of women-specific issues when it comes to neurodiversity.

By the end of the event, attendees will have gained valuable knowledge on best practices for supporting neuro-divergent employees and a deeper understanding of the importance of diversity and inclusion in the workplace. Moreover, attendees will leave with actionable and achievable goals that they can implement back in their workplace, to put learning into practice.

This event is an excellent networking opportunity for professionals to learn from one another and enhance their knowledge on supporting their staff.

The £10 entry fee includes refreshments and a light lunch. If you can afford to pay more please do
