Autisic Women & Non-Binary Network of Edmonton & Area (AWNNE)

Make a difference in the lives of autistic women in the workplace!

We are looking for a diverse group of autistic women and non-binary people who have had employment experiences, whether good or bad, to be part of the second phase of an autistic-led employment project. This project is working to develop employment resources for a website to assist autistic women and non-binary people with their unique employment needs.

The Goal
