Ep 35: Keith Fraser Chair of the Youth Justice Board - on his diagnosis of Dyslexia & how it impacted on his career

Today I am joined by Keith Fraser who's the Chair of the Youth Justice Board, Commissioner for No 10 Downing Street on Race and Ethnic Disparity as well as a great advocate and supporter of Neurodiversity at Work.

We were lucky enough to have Keith feature in our book Neurodiversity at Work and so it's a real pleasure to finally be able to have him on the podcast.

His journey is fascinating and he shares the highs and lows of being Neurodiverse/Dyslexic and undiagnosed. He also shares what happened next and how it wasn't all plain sailing and how we still need to break down the stigma that can still exist within our organisations. 

What we discuss:

- Intro who are you and what do you do?
- When/why did you get your late diagnosis and was there a eureka moment?
- What impact did the diagnosis have on your role as a senior member of the police force?
- Keith share how disclosing had a negative impact on him, his role, and his respect as a professional, he became a perceived risk overnight
- The challenge he faced getting reasonable adjustments over the line
- The need for Neurodiverse talent within the police system and specifically to support young people in the youth justice system
- Changing the mindset from a negative focus to a positive strengths-based focus for neurodiverse talent
- What's next...
