Ambitious about Autism Exchange Podcast

For Autism Awareness Week 2019, GroupM UK wanted to shine a light on the incredible work of Ambitious about Autism and our Autism Exchange internship programme last year.

As a result of the programme, one of the interns, Amy Walker, secured the role of Diversity and Inclusion Coordinator at GroupM UK and has been championing inclusion of neurodivergent people in the GroupM workforce since starting in October 2018.

In this podcast, Amy interviews Clare Caccavone (Autism Exchange Programme Director), Felicity Carter (Autism Exchange Project Manager) from Ambitious About Autism, Alistair MacCallum (CEO) and Siobhan Brunwin (Head of People) at m/SIX UK about the Autism Exchange internship and what the major learnings and successes were.

Hear from Alistair about how the programme led to cultural enhancement for the entire agency, including greater psychological safety, then from the three interns, Will, Christian and Amy. They are interviewed by Siobhan Brunwin about the best bits, challenges, how employable they feel now, and what they would recommend companies do to improve accessibility and inclusivity for neurodivergent people.
