“Jorik Mol is a brilliant writer, speaker, and interrogator of the unquestioned assumptions that limit our recognition of one another as full human beings, worthy of respect and compassion.”Steve Silberman, author of NeuroTribes: The Legacy of Autism and the Future of Neurodiversity, 2020.
“Jorik is an enthusiastic and knowledgeable autism professional and advocate. He both works in the field of autism and is autistic – bringing together all essential knowledge and experience of autism. He is a good communicator and can help anyone understand autism.”Richard Maguire, autistic trainer and educator, formerly of Autism Oxford, now at Autism Live.

“During our Taking Up Space speaker series, Jorik was able to share personal anecdotes about his journey with Autism, and offered lessons and advice for people that might lead or be led by those on the spectrum. Feedback for the event was consistently positive and all agreed that we need more voices like Jorik’s in all spheres of society to share and to educate about the importance of diversity and inclusion.”Khayalethu Makhubu, Said Business School, Oxford University, 2020.
Saïd Business School’s Employee Resource Group for people with disabilities, Saïd Enabled, invited Jorik along to talk to us about his experiences in the workplace. We opened it up to the whole University and had a fantastic response with roughly 200 people attending. Jorik spoke openly and clearly about neurodiversity, giving clear descriptions, personal accounts and advice on how to support neurodivergent colleagues and team members. His fantastic way of communicating meant that people felt able to open up on the public forum and ask questions about their own situations or to ask advice with specific work problems.
The feedback I received during and after the talk was moving and entirely positive. Jorik is a brilliant trainer and communicator and his enthusiasm captures the audience from the moment he starts to speak. Thank you Jorik!Natasha Heaton, Saïd Business School, University of Oxford. 2021.
