The Full Picture podcast - Busting myths around neurodiversity
Category: podcast, Neurodiversity, Disability and Neurodiversity, Colt
Over the past few years, neurodiversity has emerged as an important element to consider in inclusion strategies, but what do we mean when we talk about neurodiversity? And how can we cater to our non-neurotypical colleagues? In this episode, we break down misconceptions around neurodiversity and reshape it as a superpower.
The Full Picture is a new podcast from Colt Technology Services combining individual stories and expert opinions to make sense of the world around us. Our first season is all around inclusion and diversity: why is it important? What do I&D statistics actually mean? And, most importantly, what should companies be doing about it?
We have launched a podcast that blends personal stories from our Colties, their own experiences and unique perspectives, along with the views and insights from experts within our industry and beyond. Episodes will focus in on topics that mean something to our people and the workforces of other organisations such as mental health, neurodiversity in tech, changing conversations about race, to name a few.
