Cognitive diversity brings enormous benefits to teams. How can we proactively recruit and support people who are neurodivergent?
In this week's episode of The Mind Tools L&D Podcast, speaker and trainer Reena Anand speaks to Gemma and Ross about neurodiversity, barriers to inclusion and what we can do to topple those barriers.
· what neurodiversity is
· the intersection of neurodivergence and race
· how managers and L&D can create neuroinclusive environments.
During the podcast, Reena referenced a couple of research papers.
