- Demystifying neurodiversity - The 2022 hot topic
- Laurel Herman –– Founder- ASPIERATIONS & Paul Marshall, Senior Advisor, Internal Audit and Corporate Governance at EY
A regrettable number of very able and high performing adults with Autism Spectrum Difference (ASD) remain unemployed, so constituting a wasted talent that business should be using to its advantage. Many of those who have managed to retain employment are considerably underemployed, never reaching their full potential.
Many typical ASD characteristics are hugely beneficial to business, and in particular internal audit - strong problem-solving skills, attention to detail, technical ability, capacity for rote memory, intense focus, logical and analytical thinking, reliability, loyalty, dedication and determination and can bring a competitive advantage.
This session will explain more about neurodiversity whilst also dispelling the many myths and misinformation that abound. By raising awareness and understanding, and encouraging and demonstrating an accepting, respecting, accommodating and welcoming culture, organisations can get the best from employees with Autism Spectrum Difference.
