Untapped Potential: Practical Strategies for Neuroinclusive Recruitment

Practical Strategies for Neuroinclusive Recruitment Untapped Potential

In this webinar, Ludmila Praslova (professor of Psychology at Vanguard University and expert on neurodiversity, focus autism) and Tori Graham (Talent Partner at Bother and neuro inclusivity expert on ADHD) will uncover tangible strategies for neurodiversity inclusion in recruitment.

Learn about best practices for

  • Assessing your current recruitment process to identify barriers for neurodivergent candidates

  • Biggest obstacles to neurodivergent candidates

  • Adjusting your recruitment process to accommodate neurodivergent candidates

  • Resources and tips to optimise your hiring process

Here are the main takeaways

  • Assessing your recruitment process towards neuroinclusivity starts with your job requirements: What tasks does a person in this role carry out and how can we measure them in the recruitment process?

  • There are many pitfalls in the recruitment process. Interviews are particularly dangerous because of the weight that is placed on minutiae like handshakes, eye contact, etc.

  • The key success factors for an inclusive recruitment process are validity and education: Are our measuring tools and practices valid and are the hiring managers and recruiters educated on asking about reasonable accommodations neurodivergent candidates might require?

P.S. In a previous webinar, Ludmila and Charlotte touched upon the reality of neurodivergent talent in the hiring process and at work and covered topics such as:

  • How to define neurodiversity and related terms like cognitive diversity, neurodivergent, and neurotypical
  • The Autism-Employment paradox
  • The obstacles for neurodivergent people in the labour market and at work
  • The benefits of neurodiverse teams
  • Concrete inclusive hiring practices
