Let us celebrate neurodiversity 10 November to 12 November 2020
CS Local have been working in partnership with the Autism strategy team within Scottish Government to bring to you a series of events over 3 days, these events are on line and are open to any civil servant in the UK.
Let us celebrate neurodiversity events offer the experiences and insight about what it means to be neurodivergent.
It is estimated that 1 in 7 people are neurodivergent. This means it is highly likely that you, or someone you work with, is contributing to the natural and often hidden neurodiversity within our workforce.
Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Dyscalculia, Dysgraphia, Autism, Tourettes and ADHD are just some of the terms you may have come across – but what does this mean for you as an individual, colleague, line manager and as a civil servant?
We all have different experiences and view life from different points of view. We also know that seeing it from someone else’s perspective helps us build understanding, confidence, resilience and appreciation of others and therefore build inclusion.
Who should attend?
Anyone with an interest in celebrating neurodiversity or creating an inclusive workplace who is a civil servant in the UK.
The sessions will be offered on a mix and match basis, so you can choose to register the sessions you want to attend– we hope there will be plenty to educate and stimulate.
