Thrive Neurodiversity in the Workplace for Managers workshop

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

We understand the challenges managers can experience working within a neurodiverse team, so this training is specifically tailored for team managers.

  • Do you want to improve communication in your workplace?
  • Do you want managers to create an inclusive culture?
  • Do you want to learn how diversity can be an asset?

This workshop develops in detail the themes from the Aware webinar. It’s designed to nurture an acceptance and change of culture around neurodiversity. This workshop features many hands-on learning opportunities.
