Autism Speaks Canada Board Update
TORONTO, April 3, 2021 – As we celebrate World Autism Month and our commitment to diversity and inclusion, we are pleased to introduce three of our new board members, who are all on the autism spectrum. Joining our board in September 2020, they bring a diverse background of professional and personal experiences and serve as autistic voices on our leadership team.
We invite you to learn more about them and their unique stories:
At Autism Speaks Canada, we are committed to including a first person voice at all levels of the organizations. We value inclusivity and diversity in our workforce and will continue to actively seek engagement from autistic Canadians.
Earlier this month we launched our World Autism Month campaign highlighting our continued commitment to diversity and inclusion by featuring authentic stories of real autistic Canadians from coast to coast to coast. Every week these featured profiles will shine a light on the strengths, dreams and struggles of real autistic Canadians. We hope they will inspire us to create a more inclusive Canada for people with autism.
