Lorelei Mathias is an acclaimed author, comedy writer, and the creator of the Edinburgh-nominated web series ‘Life in ADHD’, making her a standout voice in the conversation around diversity and inclusion. With a portfolio that spans being featured in The Guardian and the BBC, to multiple nominations and wins for her comedy writing, Lorelei’s credentials are as diverse as they are impressive. Her work with MelonComedy.com, an award-winning cause-powered collective she founded, showcases her commitment to using humour as a tool for social commentary, particularly in the realms of mental health and neurodiversity. This collective’s shorts have not only entertained audiences globally but have also facilitated important collaborations with organisations such as CALM, The ADHD Foundation, and the World Mental Health Day Federation.

Lorelei’s public speaking engagements further underline her influence and expertise in advocating for neurodiversity and inclusion. She has graced platforms like The Today Programme, Jeremy Vine, and London Live, in addition to delivering talks at prestigious events including the London Book Fair and The ADHD Foundation annual conference. Her ability to engage with a wide range of audiences, from industry professionals at Soho House Members Club to neurodivergent individuals at The Square Hole Initiative, demonstrates her versatility as a speaker. This initiative, in particular, highlights her dedication to breaking down barriers for neurodivergent individuals in the TV and publishing industries, underscoring her commitment to creating inclusive spaces.

Moreover, Lorelei’s creative endeavours, such as her films about ADHD, have not only garnered hundreds of thousands of views on social media but have also been shared globally, reaching a diverse audience from academics to celebrities. This wide-reaching impact is a testament to her skill in crafting messages that resonate deeply with people, further amplifying her voice in the diversity and inclusion space. Her written contributions to newspapers and magazines, including The Guardian and Funny Women, provide insightful, humorous takes on neurodiversity, showcasing her ability to blend comedy with serious discussions on inclusion.

Perhaps one of the most unique aspects of Lorelei’s approach to diversity and inclusion is her use of comedy as a medium to foster understanding and empathy. Her performances, sometimes as her alter ego ‘Loreley The Litter Mermaid’, use humour to address serious issues like the Sewage Crisis, demonstrating her belief in comedy’s power to bring people together and spark change. This innovative approach, coupled with her mantra that “comedy is the best meds”, reflects a deep understanding of the challenges faced by neurodivergent individuals and highlights her commitment to using her talents to support and advocate for inclusion in every sphere of life.
