Launch of our new strategy to 2022

NeuroCyber was formed in 2017 by a small group of influential and like minded individuals sharing a common goal: to raise awareness of the value and importance of neurodiversity to the Cyber Sector and improve outcomes for those with neurodiverse conditions. 

The group has grown to 50 organisations led by a board who are, or have connections to, brilliant neurodiverse people.  

Today we launch our new strategy to 2022

Cyber Pathways - careers event on 27th Feb 2020, QEII Centre, London

Thanks to Nicola Whiting, MBE and Vinod of Securitism for supporting the NeuroCyber stand at the QEII Centre in London a couple of weeks ago now.

 

The fact that our stand was available to those looking for work in cyber meant we had some really important conversations. Many of the attendees were young people starting their careers and some were still in full-time education. 

 

The feeling that struck us folks running the stand, was the inclusion mindset of young people. They shared the fact that our stand, being at this careers fair meant the cyber must be a progressive industry.  Our presence helped this wonderful industry look like an attractive prospect for a future career.

Our being there allowed those who were recently diagnosed or going through a diagnosis, or supporting those with neurodiverse conditions into careers share their personal stories with us. This always reminds us, Neuro Cyber UK , why we exist.  So thanks for your bravery!

 

Add to this mix, Nic's great presentation to a diverse, young, gender-mixed group where she shared some really interesting statistics and takeaways, and a few of her favourites are here:

 

 - Harvard Bias Test: find your biases, so you can mitigate them and hire fairly.
