Update (14 March): Dear all, thank you for your keen interest in our WEimpact Dynamic Huddle Panel Discussion. Please note the event is now full and registrations have closed. If you'd like to be placed on the waitlist, please email us at weimpact@fwasg.org. Thank you!


In collaboration with Uncommon Minds and hosted by Citi, the FWA Women Empowered Impact (WEimpact) pillar invites you to a panel discussion as an introduction to neurodiversity.  In this session you will learn more about learning differences such as ADHD, autism, and dyslexia.  In addition, the panel will discuss how you can understand and work better with neurodiverse individuals and be more inclusive in the workplace.  Lastly, we welcome our members to join us in an enriching discussion over an interactive Q&A segment.


Did you know? It is estimated that 15-20% of the global population is neurodiverse.  Learning differences are complex and varied.  Every individual is unique and their experiences, strengths and challenges, differs as well.  Neurodiversity is the idea that there is no one ‘right’ way of thinking or learning, and that these differences should not be viewed as deficits but rather be embraced as part of natural human diversity.


FWA WEImpact aims to foster diversity of thought and promote improved personal and professional lives by bringing our members health & wellness topics in women with awareness on mental, physical and emotional care across all aspects of life.  We hope that this panel discussion will bring to light that diversity is more than what meets the eye.


About Uncommon Minds:


Uncommon Minds is a grounds-up initiative that aims to inspire hope, break barriers and stereotypes, and celebrate the strengths of neurodiverse people with invisible learning differences such as autism, dyslexia, ADHD, dyspraxia. To learn more: www.uncommonminds.sg
