SPEAKING & training 3-part series available now

It's about building the village.

An individual's success is limited only by the environment and supports that surrounds them.
Here's a little secret... what's great for autism is great for everyone!  
Diversity and Inclusion strategies help everyone:
Increase company revenue                                    Improve employee performance & productivity
Increase employee retention                                 Increase employee engagement & creativity
Improve customer satisfaction                                    Improve employee problem solving
Expand overall community impact                               Start making better decisions
 
So we're aware of autism and acknowledge the problem with lacking diversity and inclusion
but that's not enough.
We haven't changed our biases. We:
...don't know what to do differently.
    ...don't know how to shift the oppressive culture.
...don't know how to interact and engage with a diverse workforce.
We all want to help; we just don't know how.
But here's the thing - it doesn't have to stop with awareness. Together we can do better.
It's time to end the cycle.
It's time to shift processes and cultures in an inclusive way.               We can do more than just the status quo.
We can ALL enjoy life and work together.
together we can
shift the culture of our community to
embrace Diversity & autism
Whether you're looking to employ or to serve marginalized and neuro-diverse individuals, I can help.
let's make your company the place to work and do business.
