Are you interested in helping to empower emerging autistic leaders to build and develop skills to improve their communities?

The Future Leaders Program is Australia’s first program aimed at empowering adults on the autism spectrum to explore their unique leadership skills.

Co-designed with and for autistic people, the program supports participants to learn from, empower and encourage one another to pursue their goals and positively impact their communities.

The Future Leaders program is seeking innovative organisations who want to explore the benefits of a neurodiverse workforce and help us to build a network of inclusion by providing our Future Leaders with a 50 hour placement in 2019.

Held up as an economic and entrepreneurial success

Autism CRC was highlighted in the quarterly Forge Magazine this month.

The article, CRCs: A collaboration, innovation and commercialisation success story stated:

"The Autism CRC has had an outstanding impact. It has delivered several research-based outcomes and programs; brought together the autism community with industry, researchers and governments; and raised awareness of the challenges and opportunities for people on the spectrum. Australia's autism community is stronger for the work of the Autism CRC."

We recently nominated two dedicated PhD Scholars for the CRC Association’s Early Career Researcher Showcase Competition – Mortaza Rezae and Annalise Taylor. The showcase submissions involved producing a thirty second video summarising their research. We congratulate them for their great efforts!

Looking Through Many Lenses – 2018 Digital Art Celebration entrant

We need to look through many lenses to understand diversity. Technology has allowed me to have my freedom but stay connected to the ones I love. I know they are there for me wherever I am. I am lucky to have a family that always looks through many lenses to allow me to be me.

Artist, Rory Russell, under 18 years entry

Autism CRC is the world’s first national, cooperative research effort focused on autism. We take a whole-of-life approach to enhance the lives of people on the autism spectrum, from diagnosis and the early years to the school years and into adult life.
