Episode 233: Neurodiversity in the Workplace, Dignity and Intersectional Belonging with Dr Ludmila Praslova and Dr Leigh Richardson

Dr. Ludmila PrasnovaDr Leigh Richardson speaks with Ludmila N. Praslova, Ph.D. who was named a member of Thinkers50 Radar, a global group of 30 management thinkers whose ideas are most likely to shape the future of work. She is the author of The Canary Code. Exclusion robs people of opportunities, and it robs organizations of talent. In the long run, exclusionary systems are lose-lose. How do we build win-win organizational systems? Healthy systems that support talent most impacted by organizational ills—canaries in the coal mine—support everyone.

Currently, despite their skills and work ethics, members of ADHD, autism, Tourette Syndrome, learning differences, and related communities face drastic barriers to hiring and advancement. In the U.S., 30-40% of neurodivergent people and 85% of autistic college graduates struggle with unemployment. Like canaries in the mine, they are impacted by issues that ultimately harm everyone. Lack of flexibility, transparency, and psychological safety excludes neurodivergent, disabled, and multiply marginalized talent—and leaves most employees stressed and disengaged.

A talent strategy expert with extensive experience in global diversity and neurodiversity, she focuses her consulting on creating organizational systems for inclusion and well-being and providing neuro-inclusion training to organizations such as Amazon, Bank of America, and MIT.
