Psychologist and neurodiversity expert Dr. Nancy Doyle visits the Hunt Library to screen an episode of her new A&E docuseries, The Employables, and to share her experience and passion for workplace inclusivity.

In “Neurodiversity and the Workplace: A Conversation with Dr. Nancy Doyle” on Thursday, June 13 from 7:00 p.m.-8:00 p.m. in the Hunt Library Auditorium, Doyle will talk about the show, which highlights job seekers with conditions such as autism or Tourette Syndrome as they work to overcome obstacles and find professional development that provides them with the skills to secure fulfilling employment and excel long-term in their careers.

“I'm delighted that America is embracing the concept of neurodiversity and looking for practical ways to achieve Systemic Inclusion,” Doyle says. “We all lose when human potential is squandered.”

Doyle has a Ph.D. from the University of London and is a practicing Registered Psychologist specializing in the occupational presentation of neurodiverse conditions. She is the CEO of Genius Within, a social enterprise providing assessments, coaching, and training for over 3,000 people per year. Doyle makes documentaries with the BBC and A&E regarding the social exclusion and wasted talent potential of neurodiversity.

This program is co-presented by the NC State University Libraries and the Family Life Coaching Association as part of their annual conference. This program is free and open to the public.
