Open Call | Help explore how organisations can evolve to achieve neurodivergent equity

NeuroUnity – Many minds, one mission

Want to help explore how organisations can evolve to achieve neurodivergent equity? techUK member Atkins is partnering with NeuroCyber, on a joint research project and we’re seeking views in this online survey.

Everyone is invited and able to contribute to this research project by completing a voluntary, anonymous survey, including those who identify as neurodivergent (whether you have a formal diagnosis or not), and those who identify as neurotypical.

The term neurodivergent encompasses a series of conditions including: ADHD, autism, dyslexia, dyspraxia, dyscalculia, dysgraphia, tic disorders, and many others; whilst neurotypical references those with who have typical neurology: this joint project is titled ‘NeuroUnity – Many Minds, One Mission’ and its mission is to create actionable recommendations based on your real experiences, to make the workplace more equitable, diverse and inclusive.

Share your experiences here

Please note that this survey closes on Monday 10 October 2022.
