Diverse Minds: Insight into Action Recap

Diverse Minds: Insight into Action Recap

WOW. This day was moving. And, like last year, so many good things have already happened. We held our second sell-out #DiverseMinds conference at Havas London HQ, in partnership with The Hobbs Consultancy. We had a phenomenal line up,  but most of all, the conversations were open and honest. Agony Autie had all of us in tears. We hope everyone walked away knowing how to gain support and take away stigma, to be the ally, how to listen deeply, and why neurophobia is real. Most importantly, to know, as a neurodivergent, you're not alone. There is a fantastic write up by Nicky Kemp in Campaign on the 6 main takeaways of the day.

And, for all the parents of neurodivergents, our aim was to put as many incredible role models on stage.Ali Hanan, our CEO, also had a frank heart-to-heart with fellow dyslexic, Steve Hatch, VP for Facebook, Northern Europe on 'vulnerable leadership' and how it's 'OK to ask for help'.
