"Tips for recruiting and sustaining neurodivergent talent in the modern workplace"

Henrietta Bannister is a University of Cambridge graduate, former digital director and currently an organisational strategy consultant helping companies with Recruitment, Company Culture and wider, Organisational Transformation. She is also autistic. Coming from a generation where autism was seen as ‘lesser’, she has found many work places slow to adapt to a modern view of neurodiversity. She is a passionate advocate for neurodiverse workplaces and wants to help employers understand ways they can build truly inclusive environments that nurture everyone - whatever type of brain they have!

This webinar includes tips, from Henrietta's personal experience, on ways employers can create the foundations of a truly inclusive work environment.
