The Autism Strategy Partnership Board of the Local Authority, in conjunction with Fortis Living, CIPD Gloucestershire and CIPD Hereford & Worcester are hosting an event to offer help and support to employers around neurodiversity.
This ‘drop in’ event aims to enlighten employers on the benefits of having neuro diverse people working for them and what reasonable adjustments may be involved to help ASC employees maintain their employment and thrive in it.
One of the guest speakers will be Dr Beatriz Lopez from University of Portsmouth and founder of the ACRE (Autism Centre for Research on Employment) who will share her experiences of working with businesses to make them ready and better equipped to capitalise on the potential of employees on the spectrum.
We will also hear from some local employers and ASD job seekers and employees.
