Autism Spectrum Australia (Aspect) values, respects and promotes the diversity of life experiences of our participants/students, their families and the communities in which we work. Diversity is a strength to celebrate and Aspect recognises it is essential for creating an Aspect culture that is inclusive, respectful and equitable. In creating and maintaining a diverse culture in Aspect, we recognise that individuals’ strengths, needs and contributions differ and we respond accordingly.

Aspect programs and activities are designed to be culturally appropriate, responsive and inclusive of the needs of people from diverse backgrounds. We engage with diverse communities and organisations that represent them to understand their needs, barriers to accessing Aspect services, and collaboratively design services and supports that represent an inclusive, person-centred environment.

Aspect is committed to the principles of equal opportunity and encourages a diverse and inclusive workplace which brings out the best in our people and helps to more successfully achieve our mission and more effectively respond to our participants /students, their families and the communities in which we work. Staff at Aspect are supported to understand the variety of needs that may come with cultural and linguistic diversity; how to utilise an interpreter, accessible information or alternative / augmented communication; and how to access community linkages relevant to individuals due to their age, ability, culture, sexual orientation, family structure, religion as well as their particular interests.

Aspect believes that it is important to work in partnership Autistic people throughout our organisation, in governance, research, service planning and service delivery. This is the right thing to do and it will make our organisation and work more respectful and effective. The following is a summary of what Aspect is doing to work in partnership to ensure that this continually improves. Some of these partnership activities are outlined in our most recent annual report here.
