1 in 7 people are neurodivergent: our brains are wired differently and we experience the world in unusual ways. If you lead a team, there’s a good chance you’ve met one or more of us! Building a culture where neurodivergent people thrive takes work, but the rewards are immense.

"About 35% of the neurodivergent population has extremely high creativity, complex problem-solving skills, data and technology acumen, aptitude, and interest. When acumen, aptitude, and interest line up like a constellation in the sky, it creates a level of focus, and that employee will outperform anybody that you have in this space.”- Hiren Shukla, Global Neurodivergence Researcher for EY.

In a global competition for talent, these are the people you want – and need - in your business and on your teams.

In this session you'll learn:
- What neurodivergence means and how it affects us - the superpowers and the kryptonite
- What this can look like in technology and data teams
- Practical steps you can take to build an inclusive culture where neurodivergent people can thrive

There will be an opportunity for questions and facilitated discussion with other attendees.
