Neurodiversity should be a key consideration when looking at DEI initiatives as well as future growth and staff retention. Your organization is already neurodiverse (so are your customers!), and you could be missing out on a valuable resource pool with hiring and management practices that aren't inclusive. This session will review what neurodiversity means, how it can impact your organization, and best practices and points to consider to ensure you are inclusive and can stay at the front of the field in an ever-changing landscape. 


  • Understanding the definition of neurodiversity and what it means today 
  • What is an inclusive work culture and environment?
  • Various viewpoints and intersectionalities to keep in mind
  • Why and how neurodiversity should be part of your DEI planning

Who Should Attend:

  • DE&I Leaders
  • HR and Talent Professionals
  • Industry Professionals
  • Anyone who is interested in learning more about neurodiversity

Meredith Tekin is the president of the International Board of Credentialing and Continuing Education Standards. After years working in healthcare, marketing, professional development and nonprofit spaces, she joined IBCCES to help further its mission of improving the lives of individuals with cognitive disorders.  She has shared the impact of IBCCES’ work at many international and domestic industry conferences and is a key liaison for IBCCES partners. Meredith understands the purpose-driven components of autism and cognitive disorder training as well as the critical industry-specific metrics and benefits of certification. When she’s not working, Meredith enjoys spending quality time with her husband and rescue dog in Jacksonville, Fla. Meredith graduated cum laude from University of North Florida with a degree in communications and is a Board Certified Cognitive Specialist through IBCCES.

In 2001, IBCCES identified a need for standardization within healthcare, education, and corporate environments to meet the growing needs of those with cognitive disorders. We assembled a board of thought leaders and experts in these fields to address the growing international need and create a series of certification programs in autism, ADHD, sensory disorders, mental health, dyslexia, and other cognitive disorders.

IBCCES adheres to international standards for boards that grant professional credentials. The IBCCES certification procedures and content undergo various reviews and validation, pursuant to the professions that are eligible for certification, as well as standards established by content experts in the field.
