5000 Autism Jobs by 2020 in the Tech Workforce

We are a proud supporter of the 5000 Initiative: Autism in Tech Workforce, uniting companies who train and employ people with autism in technology positions – resulting in 5000 jobs for these individuals by the Year 2020. An estimated 500,000 young adults with autism will be entering the workforce during the next decade. Employers are seeing advantages to hiring these individuals, many of whom have strengths that lend to succeeding in technology – often quality assurance, data services and software and website testing.
