In honour Autism Acceptance Month in April, I want to highlight female autistic individuals on LinkedIn who can advocate for themselves and their community much better than I can. It is important in our work to amplify autistic voices, share resources written by autistic people and support autistic people in their school, work and businesses.
This month I am focusing this post on female voices as there is still a long way for professionals to go in understanding and supporting women on the spectrum. I hope to raise awareness by sharing a small selection of inspiring women with autism, from across the globe, I encourage you to follow on LinkedIn:
