Hiring inclusively and its impact on the organisation

How to change the work floor to an open and accepting inclusive environment for everyone

This lecture is part of the Neuro diversity Platform lecture series

Many organisations are seeking to capitalise on the significant benefits reported from a highly diverse and inclusive workforce: a 48% increase in productivity, 102% increase in employee engagement, and 183% increase in developing innovative solutions.

Using findings from practice as a management consultant and his research centered on workplace inclusion for autistic adults while accounting for intersectional differences of gender, Justin will unpack how HR managers and organisations can re-examine inclusion to harness the unique strengths and talents of a diverse workforce.

This lecture will also be streamed via a live video connection.
