Delving in to our World Changer on neurodiversity, our podcast host Elle Bradley-Cox explores some Beautiful Minds

Whether it’s driven by the business case or the moral case, neurodivergent people are finally beginning to be valued by the mainstream, as several high-profile corporate announcements in 2021 show. But, to make sure this isn’t just a token moment, we need to disrupt hiring policies and change mindsets for the long term.

In this episode, we chat with Anthony Friel, who sits on the board of Neurodiversity in Business as chief community officer. He’s also a senior consultant at Deloitte, bringing his business expertise and insights to the charity.
