Virtual Event


About the event

It is estimated that 15-20% of people are Neurodivergent in some form, but despite this, it is often considered a niche term and it is not always fully understood, if at all. 

Join us as we learn about Neurodiversity and how it can play a key role in transforming our workplace, why Neurodivergent skills are a key asset, and how we can best nurture them so that they thrive.  This event will give companies the opportunity to tap into a much-hidden level of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion while focusing on centring Neurodivergent individuals and empowering them to bring their unique talents to the workplace. 

The event will consist of a panel discussion followed by Q&A, with breaks given. 

Who is this event for? 

Anyone can join this event (and this is not limited to only women). We especially recommend it for HR professionals and managers. If you work with people, then this event is a must.

About Valentina Coco

Author of "What Power Do I Have?". An Engineer by study, but passionate about art, literature, sports, and learning, Valentina spent the last 20 years working in areas from corporate finance and supply chain to self-employment, DEI and culture and back into the corporate world but in a completely new field: Organizational change and culture… Valentina proves that anything is possible. Diagnosed as neurodivergent in her late 30ies after a lifetime of feeling like she never fit anywhere, she now openly talks about everything and anything, in the hope of breaking taboos.

She became a certified mental health first aid provider, equipping herself to support those in need in and outside the workplace. Recognising the need for English-speaking mental health initiatives in Switzerland, she spearheaded a multiple Embassy supporter campaign to bridge the gap and provide essential resources for the expatriate community.
