Minds that work differently and enrich our vision of the world

To demystify the subject of cognitive diversity—a term that encompasses neurodiversity—Raccords meets Falisha Karpati, an inclusion consultant who holds a Ph.D in neuroscience from McGill University.

She discusses the unexplored potential of incorporating cognitive differences within project teams. She focuses specifically on the variations in the way our brains perceive and process information, and how—depending on the capacity of the work environment to value them and make them interact—these variations can slow down or accelerate the solving of complex problems.

Her work leads us to reflect on the promise of a better world in which the contributions of different brain types offer an inexhaustible source of innovation to accelerate change.
