5000initiative Final

5000 Autism Jobs by 2020 in the Tech Workforce

Many with Autism are ideally suited for testing and database roles in technology. There is a critical workforce need for these positions at many companies. But, there is a gap between the training and access into these roles that those with Autism have not been able to cross. LaunchAbility along with Meticulon and MindSpark Tech are leading the charge to build the bridge to these roles through training. Starting at a Global Summit powered by AT&T, The 5000 Initiative will identify, create and collaborate to build best practices around training for these positions and to appropriately support those with Autism to build strong careers and successfully serve the global corporate need.
