AND TO ENABLE WORK

With the encouragement from UN DGC, we are arranging Autism Advantage Luncheons around the world. These luncheons serve as leadership forums for a discussion on the theme of 'The Autism Advantage'. The purpose of the luncheons is to promote employment of autistic persons globally, in support of Article 27 of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) on work and employment, which recognizes the right of persons with disabilities to work on an equal basis with others in a labour market and work environment that is open, inclusive and accessible.
