Relationships and Commitment

The Love Issue

You are still deserving of love! For the diagnosed, the creative, the emotional, the oppressed or the aging individual there is much intrigue around how we conduct ourselves in relationships. Among the memes about the singlehood stats for the Autistic and divorce rates among ADHD, the shelflife of the relationships of the poor, and the loveableness of the depressed, how can we explore trends in the diversity of ways we think and act and their impact on relationships of all types.

What is DEI+N Talks all about:

A virtual, monthly event that happens every 4th Saturday at 11am running until about 12:30p.

There is a concept that we are all neurodiverse. Whether or not you agree, you might have encountered enough products, formats and instructions created and influenced by the neurodiverse, that you understand the importance of embracing and adopting a bilingual approach to their sensitivities and our shared world. This series of talks is crafted to service the selves, teachers, parents, coworkers, friends and fellow humans of the neurodiverse. Maybe society is making us neurodiverse, highlighting our differences, persisting our neurovariations and commoditizing our quirks. Products that calm us, organize us and "satisfy" our cravings aim to support and at times benefit from our identification of our neurodiversities. How can we have a conversation about our lives in a safe, shared space that supports how we are different, and alike, all at once?

Join us for a series of conversations around support for our Neurodiverse selves.

Register today for a complementary ticket. Runtime: Approx. 1 hour
