Autistic Women’s Alliance

ALERT: Paul Nussbaum is back on the Pacific Crest Trail with his message of autistic ability! Check his progress here or by clicking Expedition-Autism.

On July 13 (NOT the usual 1st Saturday!) the AASCEND  Job Club hosts tech professional Carrie Hall and others talking about the newly-formed Autistic Women’s Alliance, an autistic-run group whose mission is to support, mentor, and facilitate networking for professional autistic women. The Alliance is a non-male space that welcomes women and non-binary folks, including trans women. (All genders are welcome at this AASCEND Job Club meeting!) AWA Includes individuals that work in different industries, students looking for mentors, and mentors interested in inspiring others. No employment or a formal diagnosis is required to participate in the AWA.

The Alliance is interested in connecting with other autistic organizations in the Greater San Francisco Bay Area, and may extend its activities to include children, and working with other non-profits. Come to learn about this important development in autism employment…and come with your questions and ideas. As always, attendees on the spectrum will offer their experience and perspectives throughout the program.

The AASCEND Job Club is a networking opportunity for all participants. Join us for networking, information sharing and support for all job seekers, their families and professionals.

Who: Adults on the autism spectrum, families, mentors and professionals all welcome. For more information, please contact:
