Autistica and Deutsche Bank's Graduate Internship programme
DARE (Discover Autism Research and Employment) is a bold new initiative working with employers to assess and support employment programmes for autistic individuals. The programme aims to determine how firms can embed autism-friendly policies into their HR and management processes.
Autistic people experience higher levels of unemployment than almost any other group in the UK with as few as 16% in fulltime work, yet 79% of them want to work. It’s little surprise that employment is one of the highest priorities the autism community has.
Neurodiversity is rising up the corporate agenda, so learn how Autistica, in partnership with University College London (UCL) and Deutsche Bank are working to solve this issue and improve organisations' employment practices for autistic people, in a presentation by Jon Spiers and Kate Copeman. Jon is CEO of Autistica, the UK’s national autism research charity, and Kate is Global Lead for Deutsche Bank’s Autism Internship, which has been running since 2016.
