Breaking Another Employment Barrier
In business school, I was taught about the Glass Ceiling. Many people believe that an "invisible barrier" prevents women from making it all the way up to senior management in many companies. This is also associated with pay differences between men and women that are present in many organizations.
Before reading the article referenced below in the blog post, I had never associated autism employment with the Glass Ceiling before. Recently, five students, who are all on the autism spectrum, all earned their Flash Adobe Certified Associate (ACA) certificate yesterday on October 12. The article mentioned that they are the first group of individuals on the autism spectrum in a vocational program, known as Exceptional Minds, that have achieved this certification.
