Several DC Metro BLN employers are engaged with recruiting Autistic Talent, others are looking to learn from them as they recognize the value of inclusion. Does your organization have a Disability-Focused Employee/Business Group that addresses Autism? Are you employed in an organization that supports you as a Parent of a person with Autism? As a senior business executive, how can you lead your organization to be disability inclusive to serve your business interests, talent needs, employee supports and community involvement? Your voice matters!
