Join us at “Neurodiversity in the Library: Building Better for Staff and Students”, a virtual conference hosted by OCULA.
This conference will explore how libraries can provide welcoming, accessible, and inclusive spaces and services for neurodivergent community members, as well as supportive work environments
and professional development opportunities for library staff.
This incredible program includes keynotes from:
Kay Sargent, Director of Workplace, HOK will speak to
“The New Inclusivity: Designing a Neurodiverse Workplace” and will share how to create spaces that are more physically and culturally inclusive for people with a wide spectrum of neurological conditions.
Dr. Devon Price, author of
“Unmasking Autism” will share his personal experience with masking to tell a story of neurodivergence that has thus far been dominated by those on the outside looking in. In embracing neurodiversity, we can all reap the rewards of nonconformity and
learn to live authentically, Autistic and neurotypical people alike.
Panel presentations will include:
