Thrive Neurodiversity in the Workplace Champion workshop

This is a half-day workshop delivered either online or face-to-face.

This workshop is designed for anyone that wants to become a Neurodiversity Champion – someone who wants to educate and change the way that neurodiversity is viewed in your company.

The aims of this workshop are:

  • to lead acceptance of neurodiversity across the workplace and beyond
  • help facilitate and change the culture in your workplace around neurodiversity and its acceptance.
