Join us for this webinar about what it means to be on the autism spectrum and about inclusivity for colleagues who are on it. How can employers make the working environment more comfortable and productive for people with autism? What can colleagues do to help? And what special talents can people on the autism spectrum bring to the IP sector, if we try a little harder to accommodate them?

Our speakers will include Nikki Dowell, founder of the IPO's iThink network, and Katy Samuels, Employment & Development Coordinator at Autism Spectrum Connections Cymru. Jonathan Andrews, a trainee IP solicitor from Reed Smith, will also be sharing his personal experiences as a legal professional on the autism spectrum, and outline the work he's been doing to challenge stereotypes and improve inclusivity in the legal professions.

More details to follow.
