Supporting Neurodiversity in the Workplace

The WA Data Science Innovation Hub (WADSIH) is a strong supporter of neurodiversity in the workplace. We believe that hiring neurodiverse talent presents a competitive advantage for all companies, as it brings unique perspectives and problem-solving skills to the table.

We are particularly proud to support Professor Tele Tan and the Autism Academy for Software Quality Assurance at Curtin University. The Academy is dedicated to providing education and training for individuals on the autism spectrum, as well as connecting them with employment opportunities in the tech industry.

At WADSIH, we believe that neurodiversity is an asset to any organisation and we encourage employers to tap into this fantastic talent pool. If you have any questions about neurodiversity in the workplace or the Autism Academy for Software Quality Assurance, please contact Professor Tele Tan at

In addition, we also recommend checking out the Autism @ Work Playbook developed by organisations including Microsoft, EY, JPMorgan Chase, and SAP as part of a collaborative research project with the University of Washington. The Playbook provides practical guidance for employers on how to find talent and create meaningful employment opportunities for people with autism.

I also recently spoke with ABC News on how we can support those with neurodiversity in the workplace, you can read the article here.

At WADSIH, we are committed to promoting neurodiversity in the workplace and believe that it is a fantastic opportunity for all organisations. Join us in our efforts to create a more inclusive and equitable work environment for all.
