Autism in the Workplace

One in 44 people in the world is on the autistic spectrum. That translates to over 89 million people on the spectrum in the global workforce. In this course, workplace inclusion consultant Tiffany Jameson and neurodivergent and disability inclusion expert Nicole Seaward discuss ways to include and support your autistic colleagues. Tiffany and Nicole offer an overview of autism, including the language used to discuss it and the impact of multiple diagnoses. They explain autism traits, then dive into ways to work effectively with your autistic colleagues in social interactions, learning preferences, creating an environment where they can work comfortably, and building psychological safety as a manager. They show you how to be inclusive in job posts, interviews, onboarding, performance evaluations, and more. Tiffany and Nicole also share discussions with autistics who describe their experiences.
