Join us on 9 February for a career planning skills workshop with Genius Within for neurodiverse/neurodivergent students and staff.

This session aims to provide a general overview and awareness of managing inclusivity in the workplace with a focus on skills and careers.
We will:
– clarify the spectrum of neurodiversity as hidden disabilities
– discuss workplace challenges, flashpoints, and discrimination hot spots
identify and engage individual strengths and skills for career mapping
– share practical strategies in work and job applications

This event will be online and held on Microsoft Teams.

Time: 2-5pm, 9 February (Week 4)

We want to create a welcoming, accessible space to celebrate neurodiversity at Oxford so please let us know at neurodiversityoxford@gmail.com if you require any further adjustments or have any questions.

We would also like to confirm that our events are open to all neurodiverse staff and students. We do not wish to gatekeep neurodiversity and you do not need to be diagnosed in order to attend. If you think the event will be useful or of interest or resonate with your experience, we welcome you to attend!

Genius Within is a social enterprise established by Dr Nancy Doyle in 2011 to help neurominorities unlock their talents, whilst acknowledging and celebrating that this diversity forms part of the rich tapestry of human experience.

They advise governments on policy and provide consultancy to businesses, driving systemic change that allows all employees to thrive. They provide in-work support in the form of coaching, training and assessments. They also support neurodivergent thinkers who are not in the workplace, who might be studying, unemployed or in the criminal justice system.

Neurodiversity at Oxford is dedicated to supporting, empowering and celebrating the university’s neurodiverse community of students and staff, funded by a grant from the Oxford Diversity Fund. We offer resources, events, opportunities to network, and mentoring. We are run by neurodiverse staff and encourage neurodiverse students and staff to get involved in coming to events, mentoring, writing blog posts, and discussing your experiences of academic life.

To keep up with the project, sign up to our mailing list by emailing us at neurodiverseox@st-annes.ox.ac.uk. Also, check out our website, like our Facebook page, and follow our Twitter.

Please sign up to attend here. If Eventbrite is inaccessible for you, please email us at neurodiverseox@st-annes.ox.ac.uk and we will add you to the list of attendees.
