Embracing intersectionality
for neuroinclusive workplaces

Now available on demand! Hear from Elizabeth Takyi, neurobox Ambassador, about the importance of embracing intersectionality within the workplace. Learn how recognising the complexities of your employees’ overlapping identities can unlock the full potential of your team.

Overlapping Identities

Growing up in London as a black woman, Elizabeth experienced cultural barriers throughout her youth and adolescence. Added to this was her own unidentified neurodifferences. It wasn’t until her early 30’s when she was formally diagnosed with dyslexia and later ADHD, Dyspraxia and Dyscalculia. Elizabeth has used her own experiences to advocate for the needs of others in the community, helping them to access support and further their potential.
In this session, Elizabeth shares her story, the highs and lows of Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Dyscalculia, ADHD, Visual Stress, and Mental Health struggles as a Black Neurodivergent woman.

Elizabeth is neurobox Ambassador and the guest speaker for this session. Elizabeth shares her own lived experience to increase understanding and advocate for neurodiversity and the empowerment of those with a neurodifference in the workplace.

Elizabeth Takyi was diagnosed with Dyslexia and Dyspraxia in 2002 during her time at university and diagnosed with Visual Stress in 2014. She was later diagnosed with Dyscalculia in 2019 and diagnosed with ADHD earlier this year. She’s currently awaiting an Autism Assessment.

After identifying a gap in support services, Elizabeth set up a successful charitable organisation based in the London Borough of Wandsworth, to support adults with neurodifference and hidden disabilities, improve their employability skills, start their own businesses or return to education. She also has worked in collaboration with organisations, supporting them with their neuroinclusion efforts.
