The event will feature a panel where our varied panellists will discuss all things neurodiversity including how to ensure fair representation on and off-screen, what measures may need to be taken to accommodate neurodivergent people, how the industry can be more inclusive, how neurodiversity can be a vehicle for creativity and what some next steps can be to make these changes.

Moderated by #RaiseTheGame Lead and UKIE EDI Coordinator Dom Shaw, we will be joined by an incredible panel of industry professionals including Anderona Cole, key developer of the Industry Census, James Dobrowski, MD of Sharkmob and Samantha Stewart, Associate Producer at Ubisoft.

There will also be a presentation from the charity Autistica, to highlight recent government attention around supporting neurodiversity more in the workplace and the Neurodiversity Employers Index (NDEI).
