Message from Employment Autism about the meeting:
The number of autistic adults in employment is often reported to be very low compared to the general population. Employment Autism is a new charity responding to the low rate of autistic adults in fulfilling employment. We are in the early stages and plan to launch initially as an information service to both employers and autistic jobseekers and employees.
This meeting is an opportunity to influence the design, content and direction of the service and contribute your views and experience. We would like your feedback on the initial design of our website, logo and content. We will also be looking for freelance authors with knowledge and experience of employment, especially if you have HR/legal expertise as we will soon be commissioning content.
