As part of the agreement, Differing Minds will provide in-depth, bespoke recommendations, tailored solutions, and training packages to accelerate a neurodiversity strategy, helping Coulter Partners to attract neurodiverse talent and support neurodivergent employees to perform at their best. Coulter Partners will also have access to the Differing Minds hub, providing engaging, thought-provoking digital content about Neurodiversity, with information on changes that can be implemented in all organizations to support neurodivergent individuals. There will be training sessions, regular webinars, and access to an exclusive event series, run by Differing Minds and external speakers.
“We are excited to collaborate with Coulter Partners and really hope to make a difference in this sector,” said Jess Meredith, founder and CEO of Differing Minds. “There are huge benefits to finding and supporting neurodivergent talent and we will be looking at ways of doing this.
