Our Leadership Approach

'If they don't give you a seat at the table, bring a folding chair,"

- U.S. Rep. Shirley Chisholm 

(1924 - 2005)

As neurodiverse individuals, we have a vested interest in achieving results.

We believe in self advocacy, a practice centered on the concept that all communities hold the right to shape their own narrative, to lead on their own issues, and to speak for themselves. While some see this as an ethical approach (it is), it's also a frame focused on effectiveness

Our Cycle of Impact

Center

We center neurodiverse individuals and their expertise in our work. This is not only ethical but effective.

 

An autistic-led company, we bring together neurodiverse professionals who happen to be experts in their field.

Community

We actively engage a diverse stakeholder group of neurodiverse people and allies who guide us, keep us accountable, and ensure our success.

Why just start another company when you have an opportunity to start a different type of one?

Success

We focus on results for our clients, with an empathetic approach to the end user.

 

We empower

organizations to support neurodiverse employees in a manner which fosters a greater sense of belonging and inclusion for all employees.

Model

Neurodiverse people historically have been marginalized from organizations which purport to be about us.

 

We use our success as an autistic-led company to model for others the necessity of centering neurodiverse individuals within our own narrative.

Our Leadership

My mind works a bit differently than most

and that's great.

Using that difference has

shaped me into someone whom organizations can rely on whenever there is a particularly tough problem to solve.

- John Marble,

Founder

John is a seasoned strategist and communicator on workforce policy, innovation, and neurodiversity. His work has been featured in three documentaries as well as in a broad spectrum of media including CBS News, CNN, the BBC, Fox News, The New York Times, The Washington Post and Rolling Stone

 

He has served as an aide to Presidents Clinton and Obama, along with advising other policy makers such as Vice Present Al Gore, and Secretaries Hillary Clinton and John Kerry.​

He once was shipwrecked on an island. His life is filled with wonderfully odd stories like that.

He is autistic.
