Neurodiversity Celebration Week

Neurodiversity refers to the different ways that our brains work and process information. The phrase neurotypical is often used to describe when a person’s brain learns and functions in a way that society expects, whilst neurodivergence can be used to refer to when this information is processed differently.

There are many different forms of neurodivergence, including, but not limited to:

  • ADHD
  • Autism
  • Dyspraxia
  • Dysgraphia
  • Tourette’s

With approximately 1 in 7 people (more than 15% of the UK) estimated as being neurodivergent, and with autism awareness month right around the corner, MSB is thrilled to have the opportunity to take part in such an important week of celebration.

NCW is a worldwide initiative aiming to challenge the misconceptions and stereotypes that often persist about our neurological differences, transforming how individuals are perceived and supported both in and outside the workplace.


Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) is a phrase that has become increasingly familiar over recent years. Unfortunately, many organisations still seem to only regard these considerations as a peripheral issue or as a strategy to improve their public image.

At MSB, ESG is an essential component of everything that we do and runs throughout every element of the firm. Our Equalities Committee strives to understand and challenge the barriers that remain within the legal profession, better enabling us to provide high quality services to the diverse communities we represent.

Our Role

Neurodiversity Celebration Week takes place between the 13th and 19th of March. With events ranging from introductory webinars to dedicated panel discussions, this week serves as an invaluable opportunity to not only celebrate neurodiversity and to raise awareness, but also to highlight the many advantages and talents of being neurodivergent.

Throughout the week, MSB will also be raising funds to donate towards the National Autistic Society, an amazing charity which helps to support over 700,000 autistic people in the UK alongside their families.
