Background and context:
In 2018, AchieveAbility produced the Westminster AchieveAbility Commission (WAC) report Neuro-diverse voices opening doors to employment investigating the barriers to employment faced by neurodivergent people. Following the report findings and to facilitate discussion on how the workplace could be made more accessible, AchieveAbility brought together stakeholders in the Workplace and Neurodivergent community. The University of Westminster kindly agreed to host this research seminar, which investigated examples of good practice in the workplace for the Neurodivergent.
