In the second episode of our  'Leading with Inclusion' series on the Life in Digital podcast we're joined by the brilliant Jennie Child, Founder of Balance, to talk about inclusive hiring for neurodivergent talent.

Jennie shares what hidden barriers and unintentional biases can exist within the hiring process. How "culture fit" in the creative and media industries can lead to homogeneity and exclusion.

Jennie also emphasizes the importance of making adjustments and accommodations for candidates during the hiring process and recognizes the challenges that neurodivergent individuals may face in getting accurately diagnosed with conditions like autism.
