NOTE: The Hack-A-Thon on Leap Day is being rescheduled. We are looking to host the Hack-A-Thon at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science Fall 2020. Stay tuned.
Did you know the world needs to be hacked… and soon? Today’s world doesn’t support autistics. It needs to change to truly accept those who think and create differently.
Come be a part of a unique event where we work to create ideas and take action on them – all in a single day.
National data shows that the majority of people with autism are underemployed or unemployed. And 85% of autistic college graduates are unemployed, compared to the national average of 3.6%. There is a whole community of untapped talent and significant contributions that we are missing out on.
What is different about this Hack-A-Thon?
No speakers. You, me, autistics, therapists, company leaders, HR team members, makers, families and more. We will be hearing the big problems and working together to innovate solutions. A trained team will lead us through an ideation process where we will create key ideas with actionable next steps to begin changing the world in 2020.
This is a one-of-a-kind brainstorming and networking event.
We know radical change can happen when we gather people from diverse backgrounds and neurodiverse perspectives together to hack the world for autism.
We need your unique perspective and experience to help shape the conversation.
We’re Hacking Autism, a non-profit with a mission to fund, create and support opportunities that improve the personal and professional lives of people on the Autism Spectrum. We believe technology, therapy, and employment play a key role in our mission, giving them the tools to show their unique talents and abilities in this fast-paced world. We connect individuals with Autism to those with the skills and abilities to help them through hack-a-thons, technology grants, job training and more. You aren’t powerless in this fight, use your gifts and talents to make a positive impact. Join us in making a difference. More information at HackingAutism.org
