There’s just two days to go before this year’s Celebrating Neurodiversity Awards.
The awards celebrate the successes and achievements of the Neurodiverse and Neurodivergent community and recognise the individuals, businesses, organisations and projects that go above and beyond to promote accessibility and inclusion.
This year’s event at the Institute of Physics in London and online will be hosted by broadcaster, podcaster and best-selling author Nicky Campbell alongside his daughter Kirsty Campbell.
The pair both have ADHD, and it was Kirsty’s diagnosis at the age of 15 that led Nicky to explore his own ADHD traits aged 60. The duo will share personal reflections as part of the hybrid awards ceremony being held from 5.30pm on Thursday (28 September).
“We know all too well that neurodivergent people spend too much time being defined by their perceived deficits and not enough time identifying and celebrating their many strengths and successes,” said Jacqui Wallis, CEO of Genius Within, organisers of the Celebrating Neurodiversity Awards.
“Our awards are a space to do just that.”
