FinTech's DEI Discussions

Nadia Edwards-Dashti, CCO & Lydia Sear,

Welcome back to another episode of the Humans of FinTech. This week, Nadia is delighted to be joined by Lydia Sear, Brand Manager here at Harrington Starr! Lydia advocates for neurodiversity and mental health. Diagnosed with ADHD when she was 21, she's a firm believer that it's her creative superpower and that we should all embrace our differences. Since her late diagnosis, Lydia has been on a personal journey to learn about neurodiversity and how we can educate one another to be more openly inclusive. In this episode, Lydia shares personal challenges she has faced within the workplace and offers tangible advice for employers to support their neurodivergent colleagues. This episode demonstrates that having ADHD, ASD or any other condition does not make you deficient, it simply makes you different. 💫
