Autism Forward has created a network of employers, autistic employees and professionals who meet regularly to discuss and implement initiatives to improve opportunities and inclusion for autistic people. By sharing best practice, we can drive change forward more effectively and ensure that neurodiversity is included in the broader diversity agenda.

Our network includes a wide range of employers including law firms, accountancy firms, management consultants, banks, investment banks, technology companies, telecoms companies, insurers, asset management firms, universities and other autism charities.

Notes from our previous roundtable events can be found here:
