AUTISM AND EMPLOYMENT AWARENESS EVENT

 MONDAY 19th March 2018

The Autism Strategy Partnership Board of the Local Authority, in conjunction with Fortis Living, is hosting an event to explore and showcase different options and opportunities for the employment of individuals with autistic spectrum condition (ASC).  It is aimed at employers, to enlighten them on the benefits of having neuro diverse people working for them and what reasonable adjustments may be involved to help ASC employees maintain their employment and thrive in it. The event   also aims at  adults with ASC to assist them in identifying opportunities they can explore to get access to work.

The format of the event will be a combination of exhibition and speakers.  Stall holders will include a wide range of local business either employing or willing to employ people with ASC. The speakers will each have a 15 minute slot and then there will be a panel discussion at the end for Q&As.

There will time to visit the Market Place and opportunities for networking.

Neural Diversity (sometimes referred to as Neurodiversity) describes those in the population who have a different thinking process than those who are neurotypical. By using a diversity hiring effort around the way people think, an organization can greatly improve their creative and innovation output and impact.
