I called one of our equity officers today. I covered the absence of neurodivergence in the inclusion policies and staff education courses.
I explained I am constantly ostracised, have my requests ignored and isolated.
I keep asking to be able to help in areas low on staff more often. Like a half day or 3 a week. This helps the team and me. I get social, variety and the team get help.
2 years and its been ignored.
So I explained this in more detail to the equity officer. I why am I being excluded when others aren't? It's depressing and dismissive and devaluing.
I explained my condition, how it affects me and how I'm wired. I can't tell my managers as they're all judgemental and I don't have the protection of work policy due to the entire group having been left out.
Legally I'm disabled. In reality I'm differently abled. By the law I can request reasonable adjustment which I have been doing only to be ignored and isolated.
She will talk to her manager and we are going to start the conversation.
