Our Leadership Approach
Let's Do Something Different
"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.
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.
We actively engage a diverse stakeholder group which is composed of neurodiverse people, parents, 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?
We focus on results for our clients, with an empathetic approach to the end user.
organizations to support neurodiverse employees in a manner which fosters a greater sense of belonging and inclusion for all employees.
We use our success to model the necessity of centering neurodiverse individuals within our own narrative.
Neurodiverse people have historically been marginalized from organizations which purport to be about us - producing static outcomes for us & our families face. There's a much better way.
To Do Something Different, It Helps To Be a Bit Different.
"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."

Pivot Stakeholder Steering Committee: Soliciting Accountability & Advice to Ensure Success
"In starting Pivot, we want to model something different - to demonstrate that if we focus on the end-user (those populations impacted by our work), the results will be much better than we would otherwise have.
When I worked in politics, I was always struck by how effective candidates built grassroots "kitchen cabinet" steering committees - groups of voters (environmentalists, civil rights advocates, business owners, etc.) whom they could work together with to positively shape their policy and to hold their feet to the fire." - John Marble, Founder
