The 2021 six-week webinar series will focus on understanding autism research and autistic people’s experiences across multiple identities and groups (i.e., race, gender, sexual orientation, neurodiversity, culture, poverty).

Each presentation will consider autism research and autistic experiences from an intersectional perspective. Presentations will be followed by Q&A with the expert presenter(s).

Seminars are designed for students, post-doctoral fellows, early-career investigators, families, service providers and people with autism and their families.
