Our

Mission

We are Autistic women connecting with and helping other autistic women in the professional space.

Autistic Women's Alliance is an autistic run organization that encourages autistic women to think about, craft, embrace, and express their self-defined individuality within and beyond the workplace. We're non-cis male space for individuals that identify as women, or marginalized genders. This includes cis women, trans women, and non-binary individuals.

Autistic Women's Alliance aids autistic women to thrive in current or new careers through different ways that include peer mentoring, education, and community outreach. Our members may or may not be employed full time, or formally diagnosed. We encourage women that identify as autistic or as being neurodiverse to participate

“For autistic individuals to succeed in this world, they need to find their strengths and the people that will help them get to their hopes and dreams. In order to do so, ability to make and keep friends is a must. Amongst those friends, there must be mentors to show them the way. A supportive environment where they can learn from their mistakes is what we as a society needs to create for them,”

Bill Wong, Autistic Occupational Therapist
