Description

This session draws on recent research for a dissertation in People and Organisation Development at Roffey Park Institute. Uta Langley will explore neurodiversity in the context of diversity, disability and mental health and investigate how it can increase cognitive diversity in organisations.

We will experiment with applying the proposed model of being at your best to yourself and then see how that might differ from neurodiverse individuals in the study or not. We will investigate what is in the power of the individual (perceived and “real”) and what the role of managers, HR and the organisation at large is in supporting neurodiverse individuals be at their best and how some of it could apply to all staff.
