The aim of this event is to expand everyone’s horizons and include more diverse perspectives to make our industry more open and creative, reflecting its crucial role and responsibility in society
Our guest speaker Marc Goblot, one of the Neurodiversity SG committee members will discuss his involvement in technology and neurodiversity, sharing a quick overview of neurodiversity and why it matters to us in tech. He’ll also introduce the new specialist group as part of the BCS’s approach to inclusive tech, its objectives, people and emerging plans.
Marc will discuss Agile and how its principles could relate to neuro-inclusive practices. We’ll then have time for some conversation on the topics raised, and facilitate a Questions and Answers discussion.
