Neurodiversity: Recognising our uniqueness

Mental health expert Colin Preece explores what neurodiversity is and the benefits of embracing diversity in the workplace.

About the webinar

On-demand | 35 minutes

Neurodiversity is based on the concept that neurological variances should be recognised and respected just like any other human variation, such as gender, race or sexual orientation.

Everyone’s brain works differently, and we all think, learn and process information in various ways. Recognising this in the workplace is vital to success, as a diverse and inclusive working environment has many benefits for both the employer and the employee.

This Canada Life webinar, presented in collaboration with Teladoc and mental health expert, Colin Preece, covers:

  • What neurodiversity is
  • The neurodiversity ‘umbrella’
  • The benefits of embracing diversity in the workplace
  • How it can benefit you, your employees and your organisation
