ADHD affects everyone though women often go undiagnosed, black women even more so. Abigail Agyei has lived with this disorder for her whole life, though she only got diagnosed recently. In her talk, she explains how and why early diagnosis in everyone, black women included, is important for the entire society and discusses why it isn’t a norm now. Abigail Agyei is an award winning, MBE holding, dynamic senior policy advisor and change maker. She has over seven years’ experience in building and maintaining strong relationships with internal and external stakeholders and community groups, leading community projects with vast experience supporting voluntary and marginalized groups.
She’s also incredibly passionate about intersectional identities, amplifying marginalised communities’ voices and how their lived experiences are shaped in the world. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at x
