In recent times organisations have become  tuned-in to the advantages of gender and culture diversity, but  diversity of mind has remained largely overlooked or regarded as too complex.

Unlock Innovation Ltd is focussed on dyslexia, the most commonly occurring neurodiversity.   It is estimated that 20% of global citizens have been disempowered and often marginalised by society’s  lack of understanding.
