The Socialable website, posted this article about technology companies seem to be falling behind in employing individuals with various categorized differences.
One aspect the article talks about is individuals with different abilities taking matters of employment into their own hands by becoming entrepreneurs, which lines up well with AutismHR's approach to helping skilled autistic individuals on a path toward meaningful income.
The following article on Healthline.com talks about autism being portrayed more in TV and film these days, and how that is having a potentially positive affect on mainstream awareness and acceptance of autism and neurodiversity throughout society, including the workplace.
There are arguments about how various TV shows and films depict autistic individuals and/or whether or not autistic screenwriters and actors are utilized or consulted to ensure accurate portrayal of the wide spectrum that is autism.
However, the fact that such shows/films are sparking more conversation among "neurotypicals" I believe is a starting point from which to drive positive change.
