Lara talks about her employment experiences, both good and bad

Too many autistic people are deprived of meaningful, sustained employment.

Autistic people are willing and able to work, but traditional recruitment processes remain inaccessible for many.

By 2030 we want to ensure that standard recruitment and working practices are more accessible and develop specialist employment support that works for autistic people who need it.​

A lot of research has shown that people who are neurodiverse bring so much value for companies. And I think companies have to stop with that culture of trimming away irregularities because the nicest picture that we can build is a picture that brings everyone together with their irregularities so the puzzle looks amazing.
