Only 16% of autistic adults are in full-time paid employment. And in almost a decade the situation hasn’t improved. All too often, employers don’t see ability. They see autism. They see a problem.
With your help, starting with World Autism Awareness Week, we can change that. Starting in your workplace.
Raise funds and improve autism understanding at work
All of the events in this pack have been designed to help you spread real autism understanding at work – as well as having fun and raising money!
By hosting your own World Autism Awareness Week event at work, you can help improve your colleagues and employer’s understanding of autism. In turn, that make huge strides towards helping autistic people get the jobs they deserve.
If any workplace was thinking about taking part next year, we would say do it! Be a progressive workplace which encourages diversity and acceptance, while having a bit of fun in the process!
