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.
Autistic women and non-binary people supporting each other to achieve employment and career goals.

The group will meet monthly, either virtually or in person, dependent on COVID-19 restrictions, and will wrap-up by November 2022. Applicants are welcome from across the province; those living outside of the Edmonton area can attend meetings via Zoom.
