Watching #EmployableMeAU – apart from anything else says a lot about the way we recruit. And look at what we’re missing.

Watching #EmployableMeAU and it’s overwhelmingly clear that it’s less about neurologically-diverse people changing who they are to “fit in”, but a LOT more about *everyone* just being a lot less judgmental, more patient and kind. What a message 💗

That was amazing television. Fantastic work ABC. If you didn’t have a tear in your eye with Tim’s journey you are dead inside. #EmployableMeAU

Lots about how people with autism need to change. Maybe the world & employers needs to change too??? #EmployableMeAU

All the families of all the people in #EmployableMeAU are absolute champions. They’re their children’s biggest advocates and the wider community don’t often acknowledge their caring role.

I am hopeful that my autistic boys 5 & 10 will have greater employment prospects & work in more inclusive workplaces when they enter the workforce. #EmployableMeAU

I hope #EmployableMeAU leads to some real systemic change – more employers employing, accomodating, promoting & nurturing disabled people.

Okay ten minutes in and I’m welling up. 6% unemployment in general population and up to 60% unemployment in the autism community.
I can see so many similarities between Rohan and our son. He’s so beautifully in-your-face 😊 #EmployableMeAU #autism

Last night was the first time that I truly understood what is meant by the autism SPECTRUM. It shows itself in so many different ways, and that was just three (beautiful) people. I look forward to learning and understanding so much more #EmployableMeAU

Another television triumph @ABCTV ! #EmployableMeAU provides an insight into the challenges of seeking employment for ppl w disabilities but also reveals solutions & strategies for potential employers to break through the barriers & embrace difference & diversity.
