Creating Equitable Digital Spaces for Neurodivergent Individuals
While the goal of many digital spaces has been about inclusivity, equality, and diversity, the needs of neurodivergent individuals have continued to progress in relation to digital communities. While many digital spaces, presentations, and events are designed for a neurotypical audience, the needs of neurodivergent attendees, participants, and guests to digital spaces must be considered and applied in order to be equitable from the start. This presentation will detail how organizations creating digital spaces (such as a forum, Slack, Discord server, etc.), experiences/events, and communities can create, maintain, and grow their platform with neurodivergent people and their experiences not only in mind, but in focus.
