Furthermore, in the United States, research has also shown that Autistic adults who are working are also likely to be underemployed (Ohl et al., 2017). In this upcoming issue of the Canadian Journal of Autism Equity, we would like to highlight pieces on the subject of autism-related employment and equity. This can include narratives about one’s journey toward employment, work experiences, maintaining employment, going through the job interview process, barriers to employment or to access, discrimination in the workplace, accessing equitable supports in the workplace, going through vocational training programs or autism hiring initiatives, and more.
