||CleanEp 11 - Nip Wijewickrema of GG's Flowers||Now here is someone who’s a little different to the other guests that I’ve had on the show to-date. Nip doesn’t work for some large corporate and isn’t a self advocate paving her own way. However, she is one driven individual with a big heart and a big dream and she’s certainly making amazing inroads towards that dream!||11 12 2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanEp 10 - Matt Ormiston, Autism@Work and ANZ Bank||In this week’s episode I get to spend some time discussing the ANZ Bank foray into neurodiversity employment. After a period of assessment and evaluation ANZ made the leap with a partner, DXC Technology, (check out my interview with Michael Fieldhouse of DXC to hear their story) and have gone from strength to strength since. It’s encouraging to hear the progress that prominent Australian companies are making when it comes to setting the pace for neurodiverse inclusion at work. If you’re interested in learning more about hiring a broader range of people, connect with me on LinkedIn and let’s start a conversation.||18 11 2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanEp9 - Chris Varney, Founder of the I-Can Network||Chris is a an inspirational guy. Someone who saw a serious gap in the way that young autistic people were being supported to self advocate and see their strengths and what they ‘can do’. In a world where too many young autistic people are told what they can’t do (by often well meaning people), like all young people they need to be encourage to discover and focus on the things they can do. The I-Can Network works hard to empower young people across primary, secondary and tertiary education settings and also provides a range of speakers and mentoring opportunities. Check them out and take a look at the various profiles of speakers and staff, many of whom are autistic themselves.||5 11 2018||Free||View in iTunes|
