Become a speaker

We are eager to hear from all potential speakers, with a particular interest in individuals who advocate for neurodiversity in the workplace or are leaders in driving innovation and fostering neurodiversity within organisations. We invite you to step forward and share your experience and insight with our audience.

Why become a speaker?

The UWI aims to promote transformation of the habits and processes organisations use to attract and manage a diverse workforce.  Our events enable workforce practitioners to connect with industry peers, evolve new approaches, and move beyond limitations of today to build the universal workforce of tomorrow.

By becoming a speaker at our events, you gain a significant advantage of enhanced visibility within a community dedicated to educating and supporting blue-chip organisations in driving efficient DE&I strategies. This opportunity provides a platform to establish yourself as a thought-leader and promote your personal brand.

The UWI community revolves around fostering connections, trading valuable insights, and driving the DE&I conversation towards the vision of a universal workforce. Our events offer direct access to your audience, enabling meaningful engagement through various avenues. Join us in shaping the future of work and expand your influence within the community.

Speaker opportunities

Workshops (Virtual/In-person/Hybrid)

These facilitated events are run in the form of a roundtable with plenty of time for Q&As. They promote the sharing of ideas, co-creation of solutions and helping practitioners map out their path to a universal workforce.

Speakers will have the opportunity to make a real impact, sharing their expertise with a dedicated audience of DE&I leaders.

Virtual Forums

Run on an innovative platform, the UWI Virtual Forum is a table networking event that lets attendees move around a virtual room at their own pace, chatting to peers on subjects they want to get to know better.

Speakers will have the opportunity to host a virtual room, talking about a hot topic within the neurodiverse/universal workforce subject.

In-Person Conferences

These full-day events are designed to ignite insightful conversations, bring awareness to new innovations and strategies, and offer networking opportunities. 

Here, speakers can participate in a number of ways: either as a presenter of a specialist topic that fits within the event objectives, or in round-table discussions.
