Access King’s (Online) Meet Up: Neurodiversity Awareness

Online via Microsoft Teams

 

Hester Velthuis of the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience at King’s College London will be presenting her Policy Idol project: Diverging standard employment practices for a healthier and safer workplace. It is estimated that 41% of the population have some sort of neurodivergence, and a lack of support for neurodivergent employees can have a big impact on employee health, wellbeing and productivity. The aim of the project is to improve employee wellbeing by introducing a mandatory neurodiversity e-learning module. For this meet up, King’s colleagues are invited to give constructive feedback and comments on the project, to discuss potential advantages and ideas for successfully implementation at King’s College London, and to open up discussion about neurodiversity inclusion and disability inclusion more generally.
