Farah Jamil on Misconceptions around ADHD and Neurodiversity

Some workplaces can be challenging, especially when there's a lack of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). The "D" in DEI is not just about visible diversity, but also about invisible and internal forms of (neuro)diversity. Leaders and executives with Attention Deficit / Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) often suffer in silence and experience the pain of procrastination, perfectionism, imposter syndrome, rejection sensitivity dysphoria, and other obstacles that prevent them from flourishing in the workplace. In this session, Farah Jamil will discuss how coaches can support our neurodiverse clients in their leadership journeys.  

Founder of Muslim ADHDers, Farah is a Health Executive, a Certified Executive Coach (CEC), a Certified ADHD Life Coach (CALC), Coach Instructor, & a global Speaker. She empowers early- to mid-careerists to be less passive & more proactive to unleash their inner “Super Leader!” & inner “ADHD Superpowers!”

Farah hosted the 1st global Muslim ADHDers Virtual Summit with 14 speakers & 1,500+ registrants on the intersectionality between ADHD, productivity, health/wellness, & faith. She’s passionate about serving the underserved!
