What makes us unique makes us makes us human. Stanley Black & Decker, with
Envision Virgin Racing, hosted the “Quiet Race” in Brooklyn, NY. To provide inspirational children and teens from Autism Speaks and Franklin Academy a once-in-a-lifetime experience. 70 million people worldwide are affected by Autism Spectrum Disorder. It is estimated that more than 80% of adults with autism are unemployed or underemployed. They have a diverse range of skills, abilities and interests. And see the world in a remarkable way. Their neurodiversity can help change the world. That’s why we’re partnering with Autism Speaks to empower these amazing young people. By providing vocational training, STEAM education and access to makerspaces. True inclusion means valuing the input that people with Autism can make. Neurodiversity enables us to leverage all of the potential talents that are available to us in the world. We want to empower makers of all abilities to thrive in life. For us, inclusiveness is a reflex, not just an initiative. Honestly, it should be illegal to have this much fun. Because Together… We Are More.
