Opening Minds, Changing Mindsets
Empauwer is dedicated to helping organisations embrace neurodiversity and create opportunities for every neurodiverse professional to thrive.
It all started with Microsoft’s AI for Accessibility Hackathon – Empauwer’s idea of creating an inclusive onboarding framework for Employers of neurodiverse talent won the Hackathon in 2019. Since then, we have worked tirelessly to create a platform that not only bridges the gap between employers and neurodiverse professionals but becomes a catalyst for positive change in people’s lives.
Empauwer is partly funded by The Enabling Lives Initiative Grant, a strategic initiative by Tote Board managed by SG Enable, supports innovations to address emerging needs and brings valuable solutions to the disability sector.
Empauwer is backed by industry veterans, neurodiversity experts and therapists.
