Synopsis

Autism has touched my life in many ways, and whilst early in my career it has negatively impacted my career, understanding “why” has enabled me to start to leverage it in my professional career, and more importantly understand “how I tick”. How do we, as IT professionals, ensure we are providing an equal playing field for people to compete for opportunities, and building environments for all to thrive?
