NeuroDiversity in the Workplace

June 2, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Ever wonder how to tap into the strengths that neurodiversity can bring? The University of Florida’s core values aim to create an inclusive work environment for all people, and that includes honoring our collective neurodiversity. Every brain functions differently and in “Neurodiversity in the Workplace”, we will focus on a number of neurological differences including autism, ADHD, and Tourette syndrome, celebrating the richness they bring to the workplace. Having a neurodiverse workforce means problems are approached from different angles, leading to greater innovation and efficiency. Looking at these conditions from a strengths-based perspective, we will explore some of the special talents people bring to the table as well as best practices to accommodate employees’ challenges.This class counts toward the GatorsTogether certification.
