    07 Nov 2019

    09:30 - 12:30

  • Location:

    Citi Group, Conference Room A5, Gateway Building, 60 Sydenham Road, Belfast, BT3 9D

Embracing and supporting diversity, including neurodiversity, can help organisations reach and attract staff from a wider talent pool, with new ways of thinking and problem solving emerging as a result. A diverse workforce is also better equipped to engage more effectively with a diverse customer base seeking solutions.

As an employer, you will have a diverse and neuro-diverse workforce and you have legal obligations to support them. Ensuring everyone is properly equipped to understand – and be understood – in the workplace is more important than ever before.

At this event we will look at examples of organisations that are successfully making diversity – in particular, neurodiversity – work for them to deliver tangible business benefits.

This FREE workshop will be facilitated by Louise McQuillan, Workplace Solutions Manager at Texthelp, a leading provider of digital inclusion software.
