Together we can make our workplaces a better place for everyone
Join us on 26th May 2022 for our first ever Festival of Workplace Inclusion #TexthelpFest22
On this day, we’ll be bringing together industry experts and people with lived experiences of neurodiversity and disability. Hear from speakers including Jay Blades, Theo Smith, Diane Lightfoot and more.
Together, we’ll explore how to create a better working world for those of us who think, work and learn differently, which is quite a few of us. 15% of the world’s population have a disability. That’s 1 in 7 people. Around 15-20% of us have a neurodiversity such as Dyslexia, Autism and ADHD. With you by our side, we’ll uncover how we can work together to drive change, and make a lasting impact. Featuring:
