Event Details

Leadership for ALL
Webinar Series (Can be experienced separately or as a series for Neurodivergent Leadership.)

As more information about neurodivergence, particularly autism and ADHD, is being learned, we have a responsibility to ensure our leaders are able to continue to grow their skills in working with neurodivergent folks.

Both webinars will cover topics like setting boundaries, scripts for self-advocacy, popular tools and tricks for meeting neurotypical work needs in a way that supports a neurodiverse employee, and how to offer support without burning yourself out. Questions sent in advance are welcomed to ensure the webinar meets the needs of the attendees. You may attend one or both webinars.
