Disability:IN is organizing the Autism @ Work Employer Roundtable by spreading awareness amongst all communities and companies, making connections, and offering a place to meet in-person at the Disability:IN Annual Conference.

The Roundtable believes this is the start of a long-term, inclusive process. This initiative was launched in response to a growing number of requests from companies seeking to connect with one another regarding autism hiring initiatives. As business disability inclusion efforts evolve, additional initiatives may form.

There is no end date projected, as long as we can add value to the community of Employers looking to start similar type hiring programs.
We are looking for companies to join the roundtable as formal members who have programs that have been public for 12 months or greater. Any company can connect with the roundtable today to get advice on starting or evolving their programs.
