Who We Are
Best Buddies, Special Olympics and Autism Speaks, in partnership with the Entertainment Industry Foundation, are teaming up to launch Delivering Jobs, an inclusion campaign dedicated to creating pathways to one million employment and leadership opportunities for people with autism, intellectual and/or developmental differences by 2025.
The Delivering Jobs campaign is building a foundation of sustainability for inclusive workplaces through consumer awareness and community activation, skills development and job preparedness, and workforce commitment and readiness.
By consolidating existing and new resources, Delivering Jobs will equip people with autism, intellectual and/or developmental differences with the resources they need to strengthen leadership skills and prepare for jobs and leadership positions.
Delivering Jobs will motivate employers to hire this qualified labor force by offering workplace development resources and highlighting their progress.
Delivering Jobs will engage the public to advocate for inclusion and equality for people with autism, intellectual and/or developmental differences.
