A neurodiversity program is dedicated to embracing diversity of thought process & background as a way to lead to a more successful and innovative company. Companies SAP, Google, Salesforce, HP, Ford, JP Morgan & Microsoft have already reformed their HR processes in order to recruit neurodiverse talent. Would your org benefit from becoming more welcoming of neurodiversity? What do initiatives look like? This episode is for anyone who works with or could hire nuerodivergent individuals & who wants to find ways to hire, onboard & support those with cognitive differences. This episode comes after many questions about this topic during our most popular episode on diversity and pay gaps, & fits in with recurring themes like designing the career you love, mentoring, & flexible work. Guests: Tia Shafee [they/them] is a UK civil servant working in disability inclusion, founder and chair of Public Sector Neurodiversity Network, which connects neurodivergent individuals across the UK public sector & gives them a platform to share their experiences.

    What we're about

    A better future of work depends on our self-awareness and ability to stop working in organisations where shareholder profits trump people and purpose. We believe that You and your ability to act, to lead change and to manage in your companies the way to change the future of work. Management is a collective responsibility and not just the responsibility of a select few.

    We’re a friendly and welcoming diverse group of people who meet for gamified interactive learning, workshops, and talks about the future of work. We work together to learn how we can develop and transform ourselves, our teams and our organisations to be more aware, engaged, purpose-led, and impactful.

    The challenges of a complex world call for management and leadership that embrace complexity and systemic thinking, and that “manage the system, not the people".

    We run monthly Meetups and certified Management 3.0 courses. For more information on our courses and on Management 3.0 please visit http://management30.com.
