Enabling positive social change with autistic people.
Welcome to Empower Autism
Empower Autism believes that society thrives when diverse individuals, experiences, perspectives, and cultures are welcomed and celebrated. We envision a world where autistic people fully participate, contribute and succeed to their fullest potential with confidence and self-belief.
We are committed to act with purpose and intention to:
- Champion diversity by building a community of board directors, staff and volunteers who are as diverse as the community we serve.
- Encourage open, transparent dialogue among diverse voices and perspectives to shape our services, programs, and workplace culture.
- Commit to inclusiveness of lived experience in all program design and development.
- Empower and support autistic people to improve their employment outcomes and social connectedness.
- Collaborate with employers to create a mutually supportive workplace.
We will strive to continually celebrate and cultivate a diverse community, while working to enable positive social change with autistic people through programs based on inclusiveness, self-development, and self-advocacy.
