Proud to talk all things autism in the BBC's Diversi-tea event series

20 February 2020

Today I spoke to fellow BBC colleagues about autism, as part of the BBC's internal Diversi-tea event series.

Described as 'an intimate conversation with a friend', the 30-minute 'tea talks' encouraged understanding and the celebration of diversity. Six events were held across the UK with another in Nigeria.

Describing my autism diagnosis, I expressed how it 'changed my life', positively influencing my day to day outlook. I told the room of colleagues about the need for neurotypicals to adapt as much as autistic people and that the world needs to make more accommodations for those diagnosed as disabled.

A big thanks to Pam Renoata and Andrew Young in the BBC events team for supporting my story and bringing it to colleagues.
