The unemployment rate for neurodivergent adults in Australia is a staggering 34% - 10 times the national average.
People with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) are at least six times more likely to be unemployed than neurotypical people! With ASD becoming the fastest-growing ‘disability’ in the Western world, we must do something now.
That’s why we’re passionate about matching a group of under-employed people with excellent skills in the Geospatial and Digital Engineering industries. We don’t mind bragging about the fact that we do this well. Of our 120+ team, 80% identify as neurodivergent. We’re aiming to grow to over 300 people by 2026.
Over 85% of Australia’s data extraction services currently go off shore. Through our work at ASA, not only do we provide a benefit to the Australian economy by providing data sovereignty and employment diversity, but we also rapidly (and accurately!) turn big data into valuable, actionable insights.
We have already created stable and long-term employment for over 150 people from disadvantaged backgrounds, contributing over $7 million dollars every year to the Australian economy.
