Neurodiversity in the Workplace (NDI05)

Neurodivergent people process things and relate to the world in a way that differs from neurotypical people. Neurodivergent people are individuals, with their own traits and experiences. But your neurodivergent colleagues could be experiencing barriers to participation that you aren’t aware of. This is because most workplaces and processes are designed with neurotypical people in mind.

Everyone deserves to feel welcome and respected at work. Workplaces that aren’t inclusive run the risk of preventing valuable employees from fully contributing. Holding open conversations led by neurodivergent employees will help you explore reasonable adjustments. And employee resource groups for neurodivergent employees can empower them to overcome barriers in the workplace.

By the end of this course, you’ll be able to:

• Engage in conversations with neurodivergent employees about reasonable adjustments, to remove barriers to participation
• Recognize the importance of letting neurodivergent employees lead conversations about their neurodivergence, to avoid making assumptions
• Explain the impact of employee resource groups (ERGs) for neurodivergent employees in inclusive workplaces
