As part of Neurodiversity Celebration Week join us to hear from Kate Dean, Director of Enable, as she mentors us through ADHD , how it can affect women and strategies to help us thrive in the workplace.
You may have seen the alarming article recently describing ADHD as “the latest ‘must-have’ mental health condition in the UK tabloids. Whilst it’s no news that more people are being diagnosed, it may (or may not!) surprise you that boys and men are more likely to receive a diagnosis, because it presents completely different in girls and women.
Kate bring her own lived experience and the strengths of her neurodiversity to her work, and is joining us for this mentoring session.
She will outline
• What neurodiversity and ADHD are
• Myth busting
• Why ADHD is not a disorder
• The female presentation of ADHD
• Key characteristics, strengths and challenges
• Top tips and strategies to thrive in the workplace
