Neuroinclusive Employment

Creating Workplaces for People with All Kinds of Brains to Thrive

Tuesday, April 23, 2024
10:00 AM - 11:30 AM (EDT)

Event Details

This webinar is offered in partnership with Common Good Vermont.

1 in 5 people think, learn, and communicate differently than the so-called “typical” brain. Yet, current efforts toward enhancing diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace do not include neurodiversity and disability. At a time when employee burnout is at an all-time high and many businesses are struggling to recruit and retain employees, it is essential to create workplace environments where people with all types of brains can get their needs met and thrive.

What does it mean for employers to be neuro-inclusive? Join Mel Houser, M.D., Executive Director of All Brains Belong VT, for an interactive training that will give participants concrete parameters to improve their neuro-cultural competency. This will include accessibility-related aspects of recruitment and hiring, workplace environment, training and supervision, and workplace communication. Participants will leave with specific, actionable steps to improve the accessibility and neuro-inclusiveness of their organizations.
