  • The presentation was excellent, lots of relevant and interesting information to start making positive steps in the D&I space.

  • A great session that was well presented and highly relevant to my workplace.
  • Great workshop which even though I am neurodivergent myself, I have learnt so much more and see such an importance to update learning programs in my workplace to include this awareness.
  • The seminar explored not only what neurodiversity ‘is’, but also positive frameworks for safe and productive work environments and the actual science of neurodiversity which was a very effective ‘full circle’ approach to improving my understanding of neurodiversity.
