In discussion with ABP Board member Guy Cohen, Dr Nancy Doyle provides a challenging critique of how organisations ‘tick the box of diversity inclusion’ whilst their recruitment and development practices perpetuate segregation. She also points to the failings of the education system in preparing young people for the workplace. She brings clarity to the complex terminology surrounding neurodiversity, and offers fascinating insights into the neurodiversity movement as a whole. Nancy offers constructive and forward looking advice to businesses and organisations, seeing the future as being about “systemic inclusion” and greater flexibility in HR processes and programmes.

Dr Doyle is a Research Fellow with Birkbeck University and is the CEO and founder owner of Genius Within, which facilitates successful inclusion through consultancy, workshops and coaching for businesses and employees, working with people who are unemployed or incarcerated.  Nancy helped create and featured in both series of the award-winning BBC Two series Employable Me, where she supported a group of extraordinary job seekers to unlock their own unique talents and abilities in order to secure employment. This was syndicated in 2019 in the USA as ‘The Employables”, and the show has been incredibly successful in showing that neurodiversity should not be a barrier to employment.
