We are delighted to launch Consider IT for a second year! A Bring IT ON initiative, Consider IT connects people working in IT (including neurodivergent people) across difference companies, types of IT roles, and levels of roles, with people who are autistic or otherwise neurodivergent who are considering careers in IT. Last year, the programme was so popular (with employers, mentors and participants) we doubled the numbers attending, with many participants considering working in IT for the first time! Hearing people’s stories was a catalyst for change for many, leading to applying to new jobs, and for many, starting out in a completely new career. One participant commented:
‘Specialisterne encourages blue sky thinking and gives you a safe space in which it is possible to do so.’
For more details of Consider IT, or to take part as an employer, mentor, or participant, please get in touch. You will be very welcome!
