The Autism Advantage Employer Fora

The Autism Society Philippines* is one with the world in celebrating World Autism Awareness Month this April. The United Nations promotes the rights and well-being of people with disabilities; and affirms this by calling for genuine disability-inclusive development -- including increased opportunities for PWA employment. The Philippines heeded this call to action with Republic Act Number 10524, dated 23 July 2012, stating that at least one percent (1%) of all positions in all government agencies, offices or corporations and private corporations with more than one hundred employees should be occupied by persons with disability.

The Autism Society Philippines, National Council on Disability Affairs, Meralco One, MIESCOR and the ASEAN Autism Network invite CEOs, COOs, CHROs and HR practitioners to The Autism Advantage Employer Fora. This event aims to explore best practices and to share initiatives by government and private organizations, which have achieved success in the assimilating individuals with autism into their workforce. Resource speakers will share their learnings in the areas of recruitment, performance management, off-boarding, retention, among others. Transition support institutions will also share their experience on how to best introduce neurodiversity in organizations.

Registration begins at 0800H, and the event will begin at 0900H. Topics will include employment as a human and legal right, employer experiences from the technology industry and the social enterprise, the impact of employment in the life of a person with autism, the government incentives for hiring persons with disabilities and how you can begin to integrate persons with autism in the workplace.
