Autism on payroll agenda at new Barclays campus
Partnership: Joanna Panese, Scott Stewart and Charlene Tait
Scottish Autism has announced a two year partnership project with Barclays to develop an inclusive and accessible environment for autistic employees at its new site in the heart of Glasgow.
The charity, Scotland’s largest provider of autism-specific services, was invited by the bank to support its aim of promoting diversity at the campus which will house 5,000 employees.
Scottish Autism’s practice development manager Joanna Panese, an experienced practitioner and leader, has been appointed its lead consultant on the project. She has more than 12 years’ experience within the third sector through direct practice, service development and management roles.
Ms Panese and her team of advisers will be on hand throughout the project providing advice and support on best practice when creating accessible environments for autistic people.
