On 22 October, Autism Speaks, Best Buddies and Special Olympics, in partnership with the Entertainment Industry Foundation, announced the launch of Delivering Jobs, an inclusion campaign designed to create pathways to one million employment and leadership opportunities for people with autism, Down syndrome, cerebral palsy and other intellectual and developmental differences by 2025.
Utilizing the combined resources and expertise of Autism Speaks, Best Buddies and Special Olympics, Delivering Jobs will:
- Equip people with intellectual disabilities (ID) to prepare for employment and leadership opportunities
- Motivate employers to hire, support and promote diverse and inclusive workforces
- Increase awareness about the low rate of employment for people with ID and challenge the public to advocate for inclusion and equality

Look for Delivering Jobs on the digital screens in Times Square until 4 November!
