Why Neurodiversity is Good for Business
Join us for a short session on Neurodiversity with The Neurodiversity Charity. During this session, we will learn how to think differently.
The skills and competencies required in the workforce are radically different from those of 40 years ago, when computing was only just beginning to change our lives and the economy. With the emergence of new technologies such as artificial intelligence, we are all being challenged to ‘Think
Differently’. This different thinking is now recognised in 20% of the workforce who have, until now, remained largely invisible. 1 in 5 human beings display different ways of thinking, finding expression in Dyslexia, Dyscalculia, Autism, ADHD and Dyspraxia. Research states that over 40% of millionaires are Dyslexic (1) and that the characteristics of ADHD are positively connected to both entrepreneurship and the initiation of business ventures (2). We now know that university graduates with ADHD are twice as likely to start their own business. The Neurodiversity paradigm postulates that this prevalence of different neurotypes must have an evolutionary purpose. Why is there such diversity in human neurocognitive capabilities and potential? How can we benefit from the realisation of talent, potential and diversity of intelligence in today’s workplace?
