In this workshop, we’ll hear from experts who will share perspectives that can offer a new understanding to the world around you. This session will focus on the world outside of our bodies. On the words we use and the spaces we interact with.

To start, we’ll learn and think critically about the power of language and see our own implicit biases with the help of professional trainer Subha Lembach. Then, we’ll learn from commercial interior designer Kristin Cerutti about the way offices and shared spaces can be designed to meet the needs of those across the spectrum of neurodiversity. Kristin says, “When we design spaces for the masses we are ignoring those who need us most. When we design for those who really need us, it helps everyone in the process.”
