Autism is a neurological disorder that affects nearly 1% of the world’s population. What causes autism is still not known, and there is no cure for autism. It is a lifelong condition that affects how a person interacts with and experiences the world around them. The vast majority, 84%, of adults with autism are either unemployed or underemployed, despite their ability, desire, and willingness to engage in meaningful work. Unemployment rates among adults with autism are double compared to other disabilities.
We provide hands-on training and skill development to adults with autism. Training programs vary between 3 weeks to 6 months, depending on individual needs. All training necessarily culminate in employment with Auspice Social.
By our inclusive business model, our work supports the principles of “Equal pay for equal work” and “Reasonable Accommodation” as defined in the UN Convention on Rights of People with Disabilities (CRPD). We are also working following UN Sustainable Development Goals:
SDG 8 – Decent Work and Economic Growth,
SDG 9 – Industry, Innovation, and Infrastructure,
SDG 10 – Reduced Inequality.
Recognizing it will take alignment of all our organizations to scale impact globally, we invite you to join the movement as a Steward of Inclusive Capitalism. Together, the collective action of Council members will contribute to a fairer, more inclusive and sustainable future for all people and our planet.
