Neurodiversity in Data Science

26 April, 2022 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Neurodiversity in Data Science
Join us for an interactive panel discussion surrounding the strengths of neurodiverse people in data science related careers.

The WA Data Science Innovation Hub (WADSIH) is excited to partner with Curtin University’s Autism Academy for Software Quality Assurance and Idoba for the Neurodiversity in Data Science event.

Many neurodiverse individuals have exceptional skills such as superior attention to detail, heightened pattern recognition, and sustained concentration that make them very valuable employees that increase productivity and product quality. Due to their different way of thinking, neurodiverse individuals can also be very innovative in solving complex problems, yet this talent pool remains largely untapped.

This event will allow attendees to understand the strengths of neurodiverse people and how employers can help prepare them to succeed in the growing area of data engineering and data science.

Join us for an interactive panel discussion and understand how your organisation could benefit from a neurodiverse workplace.
