This lecture is part of the Neuro diversity Platform lecture series
How does one create an inclusive climate that fosters a high degree of student engagement and contribution? What does it mean to experience inclusion as a student, particularly as a demographic minority?
With learnings and practices derived from his research, which examines workplace-inclusion for autistic adults while accounting for intersectional differences of gender, Justin will facilitate an interactive engagement that addresses these core questions. Practical tips to augment the strengths of a diverse cohort and improve student feedback will also be included.
This lecture will also be streamed via a live video connection.
