Aspiritech made the news last weekend! CEO Tara May had the opportunity to chat with the hosts of Chicago’s WGN Weekend Morning News on January 13 to talk about the work that our tech company does to employ adults on the autism spectrum.
We are proud that a 100% autistic operational team powers our quality assurance testing, accessibility reviews, and data services. Knowing full well the scarcity of services and support available to autistic adults after their education ends, we’re combatting the high under- and unemployment rates among the autistic community by offering a workplace where neurodivergent folks can thrive, feel welcomed, and have a chance to offer their brilliance to the world.
As we pursue our goals of growing our client list and creating more employment opportunities, we’re sticking true to our mission of empowering individuals on the autism spectrum to fulfill their potential through meaningful employment combined with social opportunity.
As Tara mentioned in her interview, fundraising is a critical component of our organization that allows us to offer our employees financial grants for important expenses, a dedicated support staff, sensory-friendly spaces, and other employee-focused features that aren’t often found at for-profit employers. We are always grateful for the generous support of our donors who help make Aspiritech’s mission a reality.
The support of our business clients and generous donors makes it possible for Aspiritech to champion neurodiversity in the workplace and expand our impact on the autistic community on a global scale. How can we help you make a difference today? Contact us to get a conversation started.
