New from The Association for Consultancy and Engineering (ACE) which champions infrastructure and the built environment to government and other stakeholders, is Building Inclusivity. This roundtable features expert organisations, inspirational best-practice from ACE members, emerging professionals and individuals from the LGBTQ+, neurodivergent and Ethnic Minority communities to discuss the challenges and solutions to creating more inclusive workplaces for all.

Taking place on Wednesday 7 September at 12.00pm to 1.00pm, the Building Inclusivity roundtable will explore neurodiversity with panellists from Aspierations, ACE and its Emerging Professionals group. Together they discuss how post-pandemic working has created new opportunities to nurture a flexible workplace culture which is welcoming for the neurodivergent.

Laurel Herman and Gabriel Herman from Aspierations will share how they’ve spent the last six years working with businesses across the UK to promote the employment of talented individuals within the Asperger community and what they’ve learned along the way. In a relaxed, informal, and welcoming yet informative online setting, the panel will also explore best-practice with Rebecca Bettison (AECOM), Richard Wood (Hoare Lea), Tony McCaffery (Diversity Scotland), Sharon Slinger (Constructing Rainbows) and Gillian Burgis Smith (Inclusive Environments).

Aimed at a broad range of the industry, our online roundtable is free, open to all, and a must-attend for senior leadership, people experts, team leaders and emerging professionals, as well as those from the neurodivergent community.

The events are organised by ACE and EIC, and the Building Inclusivity Roundtables are open to all.
