Are you exploring whether, maybe, there’s something unusual about your way of looking at the world? What does it feel like as a neurodivergent academic? Does the way your neurotypical Professional Services colleagues communicate or socialise seem a bit odd? Aren’t autistic people mainly interested in STEM?
Are you thinking about asking for workplace reasonable adjustments to be made, but worried that this could attract stigma? Does the thought of leaving your carefully controlled working-from-home environment make the autumn feel intimidating?
Would being able to share experiences and draw support from colleagues from every part of the University make these questions (and so many more) feel less daunting?
Come along to the session Exploring Neurodiversity on Tuesday 18 May at 14:00. (This will be a Teams meeting, and there is no need to pre-register – Click here to join the meeting)
No answers are promised.
There won’t be any experts.
Just an open and accepting space where your confidentiality will be respected.
Periodically, staff approach the Disability Staff Network and ask if there is a support network especially for neurodivergent staff. This session, if useful, could be the beginning of creating something more lasting.
