Josephine Davidoff

Josephine Davidoff is a proudly neurodivergent (Autistic and ADHD) disability activist from the UK. She has personal experience of fighting for equal rights in the workplace including for disability adjustments and brings a wide background of insights and lived experiences, including for disabled individuals who are often overlooked, such as women, LGBTQ+, people of colour and those with invisible (‚hidden‘) disabilities.

She currently works in Income Generation for Ambitious About Autism, a UK charity working to support and empower autistic young people and children, in a range of settings, including providing disability confident employment and development opportunities.
She is currently training her ex-racing rescue Greyhound, Ralphie as an Autism and Psychiatric Assistance Dog for her disabilities. At the DialoguePerspectives Autumn Seminar 2022, she will be one of our panelists.
˝The programme makes possible something that is all too rare in our society these days: speaking and having discussions across borders, not about each other, but with each other. That can be a hard slog at times, but at the same time the format makes space for follow-up questions and deeper conversations that are only possible through trust on all sides.
