Promoting neurodiversity friendly work environments in the healthcare sector in New Zealand

In the healthcare sector in New Zealand Jorn Bettin is working with health care professionals to establish a sector wide anti-bullying initiative that presents neurodiversity as a key element towards addressing the problem.

This HiNZ workshop in November 2018 brought together a committed group of healthcare professionals from across the country and represents a first milestone on the journey to transforming the workplace culture in the healthcare sector in New Zealand.

The resulting agreement on the need for action is encouraging. In the coming months participants will continue to collaborate and share experiences via web based tools and online meetings, and coordinate concrete steps towards creating psychologically safe places and an inclusive culture within their respective organisations.

If you work in the healthcare sector and would like to get involved, please email Jorn Bettin.
