Diversity and Ability
Diversity and Ability show employers the shifts they really need to make to build an inclusive workplace. We offer consultancy and leadership support, drawing upon our own lived and shared experiences to help you shape your organisation into one that embraces and welcomes diversity. We have created a series of interactive training workshops which aim to increase awareness around a range of diversity issues and give participants the practical skills to embed an inclusive approach to neurodiversity and disability in your workplace. We offer Workplace Needs Assessments; designed to provide an overview of any challenges employees might face at work, as a result of neurodiversity or disability. And to create a full circle of inclusion, we also support individuals in their work with 1-2-1 Assistive Technology training, workplace strategy coaching and mental health mentoring.
