Awareness and acceptance of Neurodiversity need to accelerate to embrace this increasing population. What better industry than Digital to challenge that acceptance? What better city than Brighton, renowned for its pride and inclusion in those amazing humans on the fringes?
This BDF Session is presented in partnership with Andrea Anderson, founder of Who I Am Coaching.
Andrea Anderson's talk is aimed to provoke thought and create action from the digital community to make a positive change to the environments they create for Neurodivergent folk to thrive.
The talk comprises a panel of speakers who are all Neurodivergent and represent a lived experience of being so, with much experience of challenges faced to navigate Neurotypical environments. The panel also comes with a variety of ideas about how inclusivity can be reached, enabling Neurodivergent folks to thrive.
At the age of 45, Andrea learned that she is Autistic and her mission in life to create environments for humans to thrive finally fell into place. Neurodivergents are presented with many challenges of living in ways that are unnatural, constantly adapting how they communicate and interact in ways that are expected by Neurotypicals.
Neuro divergent folk, Digital business owners who want to understand what they need to do to create environments for Neurodiversity to thrive; Anyone who wants to gain insight into lived experiences of Neurodivergence.
